BRAINBUSTER: Martin Luther King Jr. was a big fan of this TV show and had to convince one of the actors to not quit the show. What show was that?
ANSWER: STAR TREK - Dr. King actually talked actress Nichell Nichols ("Lt. Uhura") into NOT quitting the show like was planning to do.
According to Wikipedia He said she "could not give up" because she was playing a vital role model for black children and young women across the country, as well as for other children who would see blacks appearing as equals."
