Friday 04 May 2018

According to reports, Nichelle Nichols who is known for her role as Lieutenant Uhura in the original series of Star Trek, exhibits short-term memory loss resulting in dementia.

Her son Kyle Johnson commented that his mother’s condition is "impacting her executive functioning" and makes her "susceptible to undue influence”. As stated by TMZ, he therefore filed legal documents to nominate four fiduciaries (legal guardians) to become Nichelle’s representatives for questions and decisions regarding her finances and health to ensure that she is not taken advantage of.
