Diahann Carroll, First Black Woman To Have Her Own TV Series, Passes At 84.


I remember watching her on Julia. Too young to realize the significance of her starring in a network TV show, I just knew I liked the show. I loved her as Dominique Deveraux on Dynasty. She won a Tony in the early 60's, she was nominated for an Oscar in 1974 for 'Claudine.' Diahann Carroll has passed at 84 after a long battle with cancer.
