Happy birthday to actress Diahann Carroll! Born in 1935, she is probably best known for her role as the title character in the television series, Julia, the first starring an African American woman not playing a domestic. Carroll was also the first African American woman to win a best actress Tony Award in 1962 for her role in the musical, No Strings.
