“When I was a child, I was made to feel that black was not beautiful. I suppose I felt that by the time I was four years old. The old formula for success was how close you could come to the white singer and the white actor, for the big night  clubs and the important roles. That’s passe today. Now even a white producer doesn’t want to see just a copy of a white performer when he looks for a black actress.”Diahann Carroll
