More Than ''Uhura'' Understanding Star Trek's Lt. Uhura, Civil Rights, and Space History
Thursday, September 26, 2019, 7:00 PM 8:30 PM --- Dr. Margaret Weitekamp, Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum *** Dr. Weitekamp invites us to explore the impact of Lt. Uhura on American culture and society. Introduced in Gene Roddenberry's original television program in 1966, Lt. Uhura is arguably the most historically significant character of the Star Trek franchise. As a woman of color depicted in popular culture, in a period of tremendous change for African Americans and women in the United States, she both evoked and played against the contemporary historical context. (This event was rescheduled from January 31, 2019 and is free and open to the public, but registration is required.) *** Framingham State University, McCarthy Center Forum, 100 State Street Framingham, MA, 01702
