Soapbox Nichelle Nichols and MLK

Comment: Have you heard the rumor that Nichelle Nichols started, that MLK personally told her to keep on playing the character "uhura" on startrek? I heard she started off saying she thought MLK would have liked her character - and over time that story changed to the mess its become. She's the .... only source of any such thing as far as I can tell.
