Don Marshall was a groundbreaking actor in the 1960’s TV shows because LOTG was one of the first-ever series to feature a black cast member as a regular main character, which was rare at the time. Incidentally, Nichelle Nichols was the OTHER regular main character portrayed by a black cast member in the original 60’s version of Star Trek.

RIP: Don Marshall, you have jumped into the spaceship, The Spindrift and you’re on your way to the Land Of The Giants as you enter through Heaven’s Pearly Gates. May you enjoy life wherever you are now in the afterlife.
Rest in peace, Don
