Episode Info: “A movement has to move.” – Gloria Feldt Gloria distinctly remembers when Diahann Carroll broke through a major television barrier by starring in the hit sitcom, Julia. Diahann was a black actress starring in a hit television show during the height of the Civil Rights Movement in 1968, a task that required courage, tenacity, and aplomb. In the midst of cultural unrest, Carroll was the first African-American woman to have the starring role in her own television show. Gloria argues that this was as momentous a step forward for racial equality as Rosa Parks’ refusal to go to the back of the bus, because media images are so powerful in creating social change and challenging the status quo. In this episode, Gloria lists and breaks down the five powerful lessons for change-makers from Diahann Carroll’s life. These include being intentional about your steps forward, using controversy and compromise strategically, and never underestimating your impact, among others. Finally, Gloria speaks to her own involvement with the Civil Rights Movement, her hunger for social change, and the inspiration to continue advocating for righteous cases like women’s rights.This podcast is brought to you by Michael Stars clothing company where you can get thecomfiest, softest t-shirts and stylish casual wear.
