    Dihann Carroll dies aged 84

    I first remember seeing her in "Julia" in the late 1960's. She always seemed to be a very strong and talented woman. While she may never have been a "STAR" she certainly packed a fair bit into her professional life.

    One of my first crushes. Fine actress, singer, person. Her series Julia was about 20 years ahead of its time. She played a strong, professional, black woman, widowed and raising a son on her own.

    I remember seeing an episode in which her son had been sent home from school for fighting. She told him that wasn't acceptable, but asked him why. The other kid had called him a name. She said that wasn't important, but asked what name. It was the N-word. That changed things. I wish I remembered it better.
