Shatner's book is a relatively recent account, so he only quotes Nichelle's "MLK told me to stay" version.
The book was published 17 years ago, so that's not "recent", now if anyone can confirm that the story is in there and what version it was, it sets a minimum baseline, meaning you'd have to seek interviews prior to 1994. That's what I'm trying to establish: how far back can we document the "met MLK version".
I have the original hardcover, and it's not indexed. I'll flip through it and see if I can find anything.

Edit: Found it!

On pp. 212-214, she recounts the NAACP story, where someone tapped her shoulder and said a fan wanted to meet her...etc. I think this is just like the 2011 story.
