Omifan, thank you. I Ms. Carroll. In fact, I remember wearing a Julia Halloween costume when I was a kid, in the late 1960s. Yes, Mama1908 was a nurse, so it was cool to see a Black nurse on TV.

I that story! You know she was the lone percusor to the 'Cosby Show' so in that respect I think she deserves more credit than she gets truly!

Ms. Carroll is definitely a pioneer. Very elegant woman, good singer of classy nightclub standards and an enjoyable actress.
