Exclusively for the month of June, and only available as a pre-order*, this colorway helps support efforts of inclusion in the arts.

Far more than a simple Communications Officer, the character of Nyota Uhura was a landmark presence during a time of affirming struggle in the effort towards Civil Rights. Initially a background character on the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and almost abandoned by the actress that portrayed her, a chance meeting with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King convinced Nichelle Nichols that she needed to stay amongst the stars and represent to young women of color that they mattered, and would matter well into the future. From that point forward, Nichelle would become a commanding presence on the screen, never again relegated to an ancillary character. This is our salute to a noble icon.

For the month of June, we will donate 50% of the sales totals of this yarn to the Dana Thompson Memorial Fund of Awesome (dtmfa.org) in support of their efforts to provide scholarships for young women of color and trans youth to participate in the music and empowerment programs of Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls (RNRC4G).
