Sneak Peek

In 1977, with just four months left, NASA struggles to recruit scientists, engineers and astronauts for its new Space Shuttle Program. That is when Nichelle Nichols, Star Trek’s Lt. Uhura, challenges them by asking the question: Where are my people? She embarks on a national blitz, recruiting 8,000 of the nation’s best and brightest, including the trailblazing astronauts who became the first African American, Asian and Latino men and women to fly in space.

Scheduled to appear: Todd Thompson and local film crew
