In late 2013 I took a job right outside of Seattle’s Pioneer Square. Along my walk path from my Chinatown apartment to this new job were a couple Barbershops. Each time I walked by these shops I came to appreciate more and more this charismatic and photogenic styling of an old school meets new school vibe these guys had going on. I wanted to photograph them and their shop. But before I knew it my time in Seattle ran out. // After arriving back in Anchorage, I still wanted to do a photo-journalistic set of a Barbershop and I couldn’t think of a better place or a more talented group of individuals than the group at Maritza’s Barbershop. I contacted the shop and they were down with the idea and so I showed up and got to shoot around for 45 minutes or so before getting hooked up with a fresh cut and heading out.

Nichelle Nichols on meeting Martin Luther King jr. 

"I said "I’m going to leave Star Trek because (I was going to say ‘because  I have an offer to star in) …I never got that far”  

He said "You cannot - you cannot"

and I felt like that little boy Willis "What you talkin’ about dr. king"

(laughs) "But you know I didn’t say that"  

"But I was taken aback, and I didn’t say anything, I just looked at him"

He said "Don’t you know understand what this man [Gene] has achieved?"

"I just looked at him" and he saidFor the first time on television we will be seen as we should be seen every day – as intelligent, quality, beautiful people who can sing, dance, but who can also go into space, who can be lawyers, who can be teachers, who can be professors - who ARE on this day, and yet you don’t see it on television – until now…

"and he went on and I could say nothing, I just stood there, realizing every word that he was saying was the truth"

"and he said, “Gene Roddenberry has opened a door for the world to see us. If you leave that door can be closed. You see your role is not a black role, and it’s not a female role, he can fill it with anything - including an alien"

"And in that moment the world tilted for me, and I knew then, that I was something else, that the world was not the same. That’s all I could think of, what dr. king said ‘the world sees us as we should be seen’ “and i remember being angry come sunday. “Why me? Why should I have to?…

"Whatever happened come monday morning I went to Gene, and I’m not sure to this day what I was going to say. He’s sitting behind that same dang desk and he had whoever he was talking to leave because I went there first. And I said “Gene, and I told him what happened" and I told him “If you still want me to stay, I’ll stay - I have to" and he opened his drawer and said “God bless dr. martin luther king, somebody knows where I’m coming from" and he took out my resignation — that was torn into a hundred pieces  and handed me the pile, and we just stood there looking at each other, and I finally said “Thank you, Gene, and he said “Thank you, Nichelle"

"And my life’s never been the  same since, I’ve never looked back, I’ve never regretted it. Because I understood the universe had somehow put me there, and we have choices - are we gonna walk down this road? are we gonna walk the other..and it was the right road for me"
