RIP Diahann Carroll
The earthly curtain has closed for the last time for the multi-talented, actress, singer, model, activist, Tony-winning-, Oscar nominated, and first Black woman to star in her own TV series; Diahann Carroll, died today at her Los Angeles home at age 84. Reports note that she had battled with cancer for some time now.
Born Carol Diahann Johnson, she went by Diahann Carroll. Known for her beauty and poise, Carroll broke race barriers when she stared in the TV series Julia in 1968. Her role was iconic because it was the first time a black woman didn’t play the role of a servant. She was also well recognized for her role in the film Claudine and for playing the character Dominique Deveraux, a mixed-race diva in the soap opera Dynasty.
RIP Diahann Carroll.
