I loved her T.V. show, Julia. I thought she was beautiful and smart and I didn't realize how ground breaking her show was. I just watched a person on a show that I thought was great!

....you have once again crystallized my thoughts perfectly....thought she was terrific when as a little GNT i watched her on the humongously large console TV that doubled as a storm shelter.....

Yes, she was very ground breaking. She was classy and I didn't see that 'round my hood, growing up. I looked up to her as a kid and Nichelle Nichols (Uhura from Star Trek) as well.

Who was also a beautiful woman and smart.

I think her and Kirk did the first interracial kiss on T.V.??? Not sure about that, but I know it was a big deal. I was naive and oblivious to the world around me. I didn't think for a minute about that kiss other than in the context of the story.

Nice to see you Char, post some photos in Amazing things thread. You always bring new, beautiful art to the site.

It was a very controversial kiss --even though they were made to do the kiss by force (I think I remember correctly). No one got upset when Kirk got it on with the green woman! I'll try to post some nice photos later. It's good to be home!
