Leonard Nimoy Once Gave Wonderful Life Advice To A Struggling Mixed Race Teenager

In May 1968, Star Trek wasn’t the global sensation it is today. Ratings for the original series were low, but a small, dedicated fanbase kept it on television for another year, including a teenage girl struggling with her identity who wrote into Fave Magazine seeking advice from none other than Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, who unfortunately passed away earlier today.

Not only did Nimoy respond, but his answer, which related how Spock might have felt in a similar sensation, is thoughtful and encouraging. It’s pretty great.

Think it’s too late to buy that Monkees dress/cover-up/nighty?
