What a legacy she leaves behind. She truly left her mark on stage, film, and television.

Well, this is a day I had been dreading. I know she was suffering from dementia recently but just appeared last year at an autograph convention. I thought she'd stick around longer. Heart = broken.

Very sad. Her voice is among my favorites-so rich and powerful. Loved her Norma. Saw it five times. I'm going to sound like a relic, but I loved when stars had elegance, class and a sense of dignity. Diahann had it in droves. i feel celebrities are so pedestrian now. I like my gods and goddesses. Diahann's presence elevated my life. She was a force of nature and also an activist for civil rights. Rest in peace you stunning talent. xoxo

Oh my God! I'm shocked by this news. I just pulled out her 'Sunset Blvd' CD to play in the car on my way to work this afternoon. So sad to hear this.

I remember watching her when "Julia" came out.  I was around 7 or so.  At the time, I was too young to realize the significance of her role until much later.  I bought her Sunset Boulevard Canadian recording on MP3.  There is one audio cd available for 55.00.  The MP3 recording is available for 7.99.  She was always a classy lady.

"Noel [Coward] and I were in Paris once. Adjoining rooms, of course. One night, I felt mischievous, so I knocked on Noel's door, and he asked, 'Who is it?' I lowered my voice and said 'Hotel detective. Have you got a gentleman in your room?' He answered, 'Just a minute, I'll ask him.'" (Beatrice Lillie)

On my first theater trip to New York, I saw Ms. Carroll in Agnes of God. It was the first time I had seen someone who looked like me onstage in an authoritative and powerful role. As a person of color, it's something I've never forgotten. Ms. Carroll was a legend who lived with grace. Rest in peace to a very special woman.

 A truly great talent who overcame many challenges to achieve her place in entertainment  history.

G*d bless her daughter and the rest of her family/friends for all the memories she left us all.

Anyone who hasn't seen her Oscar-nominated performance in 'Claudine' should take a look.  She is utterly convincing as what used to be called "a welfare mother".  No glitz and no glamour, just a natural and realistic performance that feels lived in.

Here's vintage video of Diahann Carroll and Sammy Davis Jr. singing a medley from ''Porgy & Bess.'' It's from her variety TV show in 1976. Their duet starts around the 5-minute mark.

I think I was living under a rock yesterday and missed this news.  How very sad.  She was a beautiful and classy lady who set an example of how to live life with grace.  I remember seeing her on TV as Julia when I was a kid, but had no idea of how groundbreaking her role was until I was older.  I was lucky enough to catch her in the replacement cast of Agnes of God playing the role of the psychiatrist.  It was a treat to see her.  I had hoped to see her again in On Golden Pond (although I enjoyed Leslie Uggams in that show) and the last revival of A Raisin in the Sun (I skipped it), but she withdrew from both productions.  I'm glad I have my memory of Agnes of God.  RIP Ms. Carroll.

She owns "A Sleepin' Bee." Perfect rendition. Very talented, stylish, inspirational. She improved the world by being in it.
