Description
It's conventional wisdom that Hollywood discriminates against women older than 40. Despite this, Carroll has had an uncoventional yet successful career including a role on Grey's Anatomy that was specifically created for her; the critically acclaimed production The Life & Times of Diahann Caroll, which is touring the US, and her groundbreaking title role in Julia, the first TV show created for a black actress. With wisdom and grace, Carroll talks frankly about her marriages, life and sacrifices.
