    Diahann Carroll, pioneering actress, Oscar winner, and singer has died at 84

    Diahann Carroll, who paved the way for African American actors on television and the movies, has died at 84, according to reports Friday.

    Hollywoodreport.com reports the actress died at her home after a long bout with cancer.

    Carroll starred in films such as “Carmen Jones” and “Porgy & Bess” but she is perhaps best known for her title role in the TV comedy series “Julia” in which she played a nurse raising a young son.

    I loved her on "A Different World" as Whitley's mom.

    What a shame. I remember watching Julia (in syndication). RIP, Ms. Carroll.

    Man, she was so gorgeous and talented. I can't think of a performance by her that wasn't topnotch.

    RIP

    I can't recall seeing the show as a preschooler. Looking at the TV schedule from that time, the reason must have been It Takes a Thief and then later The ABC Movie of the Week, which my parents loved. The first time I saw her, however, was The Flip Wilson Show. I can even recall my father stressing the point to my brother and I that she wasn't just a beautiful black woman, but a beautiful woman - period. Now I thought it was kind of obvious even as a kindergartner, but I understood what he was driving at years later when I began to experience the racial side of things.

    A great drummer in an era of great rock drummers, he will certainly be missed.

    RIP

    Damn. I had a nasty feeling that this was coming when I heard that he'd been rushed into hospital a few days ago. That leaves just Eric Clapton still with us out of that legendary power trio Cream. I'll have a play of Disraeli Gears or maybe Wheels Of Fire on later in honour of him.

    A temperamental but brilliant drummer. RIP Ginger Baker.

    What a talent! I would suggest the documentary Beware of Mr. Baker to anybody. His style was greatly influenced by the great jazz legends, which in turn had a huge impact on rock music. He was a seemingly very unhappy man, however, and had an uncanny ability to make those around him miserable, too. Very difficult to get along with according to most of the people interviewed in the film. On a good note, he did eventually get to play with virtually all of his jazz heroes at some point or another.

    Rep. Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat and House Oversight Chairman, dies at 68

    WASHINGTON — Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings died Thursday after what his office described as "complications concerning longstanding health challenges." He was 68.

    Cummings, D-Md., passed away at 2:45 a.m. ET at Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Hospital, his office said in a brief statement.

    Cummings had represented Maryland's 7th Congressional District since 1996 and was at the center of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, in his role as House Oversight Committee Chairman.

    The congressman hadn't taken part in a roll call vote since Sept. 11, failing to return for work after a medical procedure he said would only keep him away for a week, according to The Associated Press. Cummings last spoke on the House floor in late July before the House went on a six-week recess.
