Star Trek and MLK Jr.

StarTrek was so important to MLK Jr. that he let his children stay up late to watch it and persuaded Nichelle Nichols to remain in her role when she considered leaving after the first season. You can read about the actor's encounter with him and how he persuaded her to remain in the role of Uhura, a decision she never regretted, here and listen to Nichols discuss her encounter with MLK Jr. here
