There are a few actresses with such radiant beauty that it kind of catches you off guard when you see them. Diahann Carroll is certainly one of them. I mean, did this lady’s facial features TRULY and COMPLETELY get the concept of teamwork or what?!
Not only was she beautiful, she was so wonderfully talented (as an actress and singer) and had a greater versatility than most may realize. What’s more…. she was important. That last compliment simply cannot be said about many stars – not as powerfully as it can about Diahann Carroll. Can you imagine the guts it took to… not only work during a difficult time in history.. but to do so in front of the camera?
I marvel at the bravery and boldness trailblazers (in any walk of life) had to have possessed. But, like Diahann Carrol, they leave such an important, vital legacy. How many precious young girls were able to look at stars such as Diahann Carroll and feel empowered and inspired by her?!
I hope she knew how important her legacy was. She still entertains and inspires so many with her beautiful voice and acting- the beautiful thing about having a legacy. It lives long after you’re gone… keeping your name and face very much alive.
