Cheri Dodson




I watched the series from the beginning and have re-watched it, and the movies with the original characters, multiple times. My extended family was pretty racist while I was growing up, but I never “saw” color (black, white, yellow, red, brown, etc.) when I watched TOS. Nichelle was a beautiful, elegant, and classy great actress, singer, and dancer. I wanted to be like her. My ex and I raised our two boys on TOS, and they are now big fans too.
