Nichelle Nichols, Legendary


Nichelle Nichols, known for her role as Nyota Uhura in “Star Trek: The Original Series”, has died aged 89.

Nichols’ son, Kyle Johnson, announced Nichols’ death in a Facebook post on Sunday.

“I am sorry to inform you that there is no longer a great light for us as it has for so many years. Last night my mother, Nichelle Nichols, succumbed to natural causes and died,” he wrote. “However, her light, like the ancient galaxies now seen for the first time, will remain for us and future generations to enjoy, learn and be inspired by. Her life was a life well lived and as such a model for us all.”
