Just beautiful @lemonade-time

oh my god. Imagine being Whoopi and hearing that though.

Well,
when I was nine years old Star Trek came on,“ Goldberg says. “I looked
at it and I went screaming through the house, ‘Come here, mum,
everybody, come quick, come quick, there’s a black lady on television
and she ain’t no maid!’ I knew right then and there I could be anything I
wanted to be.” - See more at:

That’s three generations. Nichelle Nichols to Whoopi Goldberg to Leslie Jones.
