If you’re under the age of 40, you probably didn’t know who Diahann Carroll is.
She was a presenter at the Emmys –and we thought we should enlighten you.
She’s now 78 and she was the first black person ever to be nominated for an Emmy — that happened in 1969.
She was also the first actress to star in her own show who didn’t play a maid. She played a nurse in Julia. In the 80s, she also starred in Dynasty.
Now you know.
