Biography/History

Carol Diahann Johnson (later changed to Diahann Carroll), was born in the Bronx, New York on July 17, 1935. At a young age she received a scholarship to attend New York's High School of Music and Art. While studying sociology at NYU, she modeled and began singing in New York nightclubs and on television. In 1954, she debuted on Broadway with Pearl Bailey in House of Flowers, and received a Tony nomination for her performance. The same year, she appeared in the motion picture Carmen Jones. In 1962 she received a Tony Award for her performance in No Strings, the first for an African American woman.
In 1968, Carroll became the first black actress in television history to star in her own series, Julia, for NBC. She won a Golden Globe (1968) and earned an Emmy nomination (1969), for her performance on the series. Public criticism that the show was not a realistic portrayal of African American life led Carroll to decline to renew her contract with the show in 1970. In early 1974 Carroll was featured in the motion picture Claudine for which she earned an Academy Award nomination. In 1984, Carroll joined the television show Dynasty as Dominique Devereaux, the first major prime-time soap opera role for an African American female.
Over the course of her career Carroll has been involved in a number of live performances, stage, motion picture, and television projects. Stage credits include Agnes of God, Love Letters, Same Time Next Year, and Sunset Boulevard. Carroll's film credits include Porgy and Bess (1959), Goodbye Again (1961), Paris Blues (1961), Hurry Sundown (1967), The Split (1968), The Five Heartbeats (1991), and Eve's Bayou (1997). Her numerous television credits include series and specials such as The Colbys, General Electric Theater, Lonesome Dove, Naked City, Peter Gunn, and Touched by an Angel, and TV movies such as Having Our Say, The Natalie Cole Story, A Perry Mason Mystery, and Sister, Sister.
In 1997, Carroll created a signature line of clothes and a line of wigs for African American women. The following year, Carroll was diagnosed with breast cancer and became an outspoken advocate for early detection, and she has served as spokeswoman for the National Women's Cancer Research Alliance. Diahann Carroll has earned many honors including the Women in Film Crystal and Lucy awards, NAACP Image award for best actress, and induction into Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame.
