We Lost Two Legends: Bill Russell and Nichelle Nichols…RIP

We lost two legends today, Bill Russell and Nichelle Nichols.

Mr. Russell..what could you say? If you were a basketball fan, you had to at least respect Mr. Russell, even if you hated the Celtics. He was an athlete, but, also an outspoken Black man, who always said his peace.

Ms. Nichols…her role on television was trailblazing. We, as a community, got to see ourselves in the future. And, she was not a Mammy, or a Maid, or any kind of subservient role. Lt. Uhura, was a respected officer on the Enterprise. She was as needed on that deck as any of the rest of the officers.

    Bill Russell was voted the greatest player in NBA history in a 1980 poll of basketball writers, and his Celtics coach Red Auerbach called him “the single most devastating force in the history of the game” when he was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame. https://t.co/GHeGOxkB3t https://t.co/TLemjKIzKo
