Michelle Nichols

It is my sad duty to report the passing of Hollywood legend Michelle Nichols, who died this past Saturday at the age of 89 from heart failure. Michelle had a long and prosperous acting career spanning many decades but she will most be known for her role as Lieutenant Uhura in the television series and subsequent films, “Star Trek.” Her role in “Star Trek” was ground breaking as she was the first African American woman to be given an important role in a major television series opening a gateway for many more African American actresses.

I now ask the woke brigade to keep their panties on as I am going to be slightly politically incorrect here. Not only did I consider Michelle to be one of the sexiest women of all time, I also considered her the sexiest woman of Afro-Caribbean origin of all time. That’s just my feelings on the subject. However, we can all remember what a great actress she was and I hope all will join me in saying, “Rest in Peace Michelle.”
