Nichelle Nichols, an actress and vocalist best known for playing Lieutenant Uhura, Star Trek’s communications officer, passed away on Saturday night in Silver City, New Mexico. Age-wise, she was 89.
Kyle Johnson, her son, sent a message on the website https://uhura.com/ saying, “I regret to inform you that a great star in the firmament no longer shines for us as it did for so many years.” Her light, however, will endure for us and future generations to appreciate, learn from, and be inspired by, much like the old galaxies now being glimpsed for the first time.
As Lt. Nyota Uhura on the original TV series, Nichols made history as one of the first Black women to appear in a major television series.
