Diahann Carroll on "Julia"

Although “Julia” was launched in the turbulent 1960s, the character stayed far from any racial activism. For Diahann Carroll, just the presence of an African-American character on television was enough of a first step.

      I would hardly call camp shows like Batman and Wonder Woman, Pioneers of television. Their low budget and so corny dialoge had them on the air for barely three seasons on the networks.

      Robin Williams- what a tribute. It’s true- “The whole world is indeed mourning his loss.”

      Robin, you’re an angel now as well as an American icon. You are missed.
