Woman in Motion (2022) directed by Todd Thompson


 This documentary about the work actress Nichelle Nicols did after her role as Uhura on the original Star Trek series ended is inspiring. While it does have interviews with other Trek cast members. it mostly deals with her impact on helping NASA diversify racially and in regards to gender. The doc has enough Star Trek references for fans but the discussions with astronauts and NASA officials is what drew me in. We don't need any more reasons to adore Nicols but this actress, dancer, singer and activist never stopped giving us more - right up until her recent death.
