Today’s Black in the Day Fact

Black in the Days, it was nearly unheard of for an African-American woman to play anything on the television and silver screen but a domestic worker or a sensual, loose woman.

Diahann Carroll broke that barrier in 1968 by becoming the first African-American woman to lead her own television series in a non-stereotypical role. The show, Julia, follows her life as a nurse who is also a widowed, single mother.
