Women's History Month: Mae Jemison

Brilliant, brave, beautiful--our hero, Dr. Mae Jemison. She's humble, too, acknowledging the helping hands and inspirations along the way to her completely mind-blowing success. She's the original STEM-to-STEAM woman, being a dancer and art collector as well as medical doctor, engineer and astronaut. Sounds the profile for a Marvel superhero, huh? She was the first African American woman astronaut. This was not too long after  the Challenger disaster. Gutsy, persistent, unstoppable.

Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) and Jemison
As a girl she was inspired by Star Trek TOS, and Nichelle Nichols as Lt. Uhura. She even guest starred as Lt. Palmer, transporter operator, in the episode 'Second Chances' Season 6, Star Trek, TNG. (BTW, Whoopi Goldberg was as inspired by Uhura and had an ongoing role as Guinan on the same show.)
