Recorded on Martin Luther King Day, this episode of Dinner Table
politics recounts MLK's time as a Trekkie, and how the civil rights
leader persuaded Nichelle Nichols to keep playing Lt. Uhura. (The
geeky nature of this story does not make Abby very happy.)
Jim and Abby also discuss the fallout from the Covington School encounter with Native American protestors that demonstrated just how far we have to go to fulfill Dr. King's dream. President Trump's (short) visit to the MLK Memorial also gets a mention, and both Jim and Abby identify their least favorite DC monument. And who really is fourth in command of the Enterprise?
