Actress and singer Diahann Carroll changed the face of American entertainment as we know it, by breaking barriers for African-American celebrities.

Diahann Carroll was the star of the late 60’s Julia, the first TV series about a black professional woman that wasn’t stereotypically portrayed. Diahann Carroll's Estate was larger than you might think, larger than other Hollywood Stars.

The Cheatsheet’s recent article asks “What Was Diahann Carroll's Net Worth at the Time of Her Death?” According to the article, Carroll passed away on October 4, 2019, from complications due to breast cancer, a disease she battled for 22 years.

Carol Diahann Johnson was born in the Bronx, New York City on July 17, 1935. Her father was a subway conductor, and her mother was a nurse. Both of her parents supported her dreams of entering the entertainment industry, enrolling her in the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, where she attended school with actor, Billy Dee Williams.

Her parents also enrolled her in dancing, singing and modeling lessons. Diahann began modeling for Ebony at the age of 15, and entered TV contests under the name Diahann Carroll. After graduating from high school, she began to attend New York University but dropped out before graduating, to pursue her career in entertainment.

In 1968, Carroll became a household name for her role as Julia in the television series Julia. Her performance earned her a Golden Globe Award for “Best Actress In A Television Series” and an Emmy nomination.

Carroll went on to appear in shows like Grey’s Anatomy, for which she received an Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series” and White Collar. She received five Emmy nominations, two Golden Globe nominations, one Academy Award nomination and other accolades for her talent.

Diahann Carroll was married several times. She will forever be remembered among entertainers who broke barriers for African-American entertainers.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997, she became an activist and stressed the importance of early detection for the prevention of the spread of the disease. In 2011, Carroll was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Carroll had a net worth of $20 million at the time of her passing.
