Have your copy of From Slavery to Star Trek autographed by Ande at the convention!
Andreea Kindryd, at, 80 is a story teller like no other.
Her slave ancestors taught her a lesson of love rather than hate and equipped her to be one of the first two black staff hired by a major television studio, though she jokes that it took a riot to get her the job.
A young militant black woman, who hung out with Malcolm X and ran errands for Martin Luther King, Jr, she faced the challenges of a journey on the Starship Enterprise, as Production Assistant for a Klansman’s son, Gene Coon who wrote the most human of Star Trek’s scripts.
From Shankleville Freedom Colony in 1800's Texas to California - this book will take you on Andreea's raw, almost brutally honest journey, from a burning building in Watts to the set of Star Trek.
It's comedy and history, drama and politics, sex and drugs...
Strap yourself in, or "beam me up Andee", for one helluva story!
"Kindyrd’s style of story telling is easy going, warm and heart felt. She tells of tragedy and joy in a placid, forgiving tone lighting up the comic ‘hair wars’ between herself and her mother..."
D B MAGAZINE
"...she moves to her own time, and her experiences with Martin Luther King and Malcolm X – “Martin and Malcolm got assassinated. I got stoned” --- and ends in television studios, working on Star Trek."
"In a low, sultry voice, she would answer Gene Coons' phone, 'Coons', coon!'. If you didn't catch it the first time, she would not repeat it. While you were still asking yourself, 'did she just say what I thought she said?', Andee would politely say, 'Yes, this is Mr Coons' office. May I help you?'"
