Black Cultural History Highlight #DiahannCarroll
Updated: Dec 22, 2021
This lengthy interview is a monument in black creative expression. Carroll's career is a lamp lighting the way for those who have followed in her footsteps. Watching this SAG-Aftra interview in 2021 sparked a feeling of nostalgia in my life somehow. The carefully chosen words that she uses to explain her character development and creative process enlightened this young, black, graceful artist. Her candor reminds me of the women in my life.
At 53:19, Carroll begins talking about her love for Sidney Poitier and describing his affect on her as someone perceiving his talent and stature for the first time. To that end, I bid you adieu.
