Diahann Carroll, the first black woman in history to star in her own TV series, has died at 84. We overuse the word legend these days, but calling Diahann Carroll a legend feels like an understatement.
We use the word “Queen” a lot, but it absolutely applies to Diahann Carroll. She was absolutely regal and was fighting on behalf of Black Women before many of us were born. Rest In Power. #RIP pic.twitter.com/DbkZBt38az

Without #DiahannCarroll there would be no Olivia Pope, Annalise Keating, or Cookie Lyon. She was the first black woman to lead a network drama with “Julia” in 1968. Rest In Peace to a pioneer and legend. pic.twitter.com/TMOiNEDgIB
