ABOUT OUR JUDGES
Nichelle Nichols began her professional singing and dancing career in her home town, Chicago, at the tender age of 14. As a teenager she was discovered by the great Duke Ellington, who hired her to choreograph and perform a ballet for one of his musical suites, and finished the tour as his lead singer. When Nichelle was cast by Gene Roddenberry to create Chief Communications Officer Lt. Uhura – in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King – it became “The first non-‐stereotypical role portrayed by a black woman in television history.” Nichelle subsequently co-‐starred in six blockbuster Star Trek motion pictures and is still in constant demand to appear before millions of Star Trek fans who keep the dream alive around the world. Among her other notable TV and film credits are Porgy & Bess, This Bitter Earth, Tru Loved, Lady Magdalene’s, Snow Dogs, The Supernaturals, and Heroes; her stage credits include Jenet’s The Blacks, Kicks and Company, Nunsense II and her own one-‐woman show Reflections. Nichelle’s autobiography “Beyond Uhura”; her first sci-‐fi novel “Saturn’s Child”; and it’s sequel “Saturna’s Quest” received critical acclaim. You can communicate with Nichelle on Twitter at @RealNichelle, and at www.uhura.com
