Overseas Experiments

racialicious:

Curator’s note: this post didn’t make it into today’s lineup at the main blog—I wrote this way late last night/early this morning—but I wanted to share it because it does speak to the power of seeing one’s image in pop culture. It’s also one of my favorite stories about Dr. King. ~~Andrea…

Just randomly learned of Dr. Mae Jemison being inspired to become an astronaut by seeing Nichelle Nichols on Star Trek. Warmed my fangirl heart, and sending it out to some who I know’ll appreciate it too. :)
