Diahann Carroll and Herbert S. Schlosser will appear in person. Diahann Carroll, who was just inducted into the TV Hall of Fame, had the groundbreaking starring role in 'Julia,' the first television series to star an African-American woman in a non-stereotypical role. 'Julia' was part of an important group of breakthrough series on NBC, including 'I Spy,' 'The Bill Cosby Show,' 'Laugh-In' and 'The Flip Wilson Show,' that went on the air in the late 1960s and early 1970s, against the backdrop of social upheaval and the rise of the civil rights movement. Herbert S. Schlosser, the Museum's Chairman, was the President of NBC during this period. Carroll and Schlosser will offer an inside look at this fascinating and important chapter in American history, in an evening of conversation and clips moderated by Chief Curator David Schwartz.
