Julia is an American sitcom notable for being one of the first weekly series to depict an African American woman in a non-stereotypical role. Previous TV series featured African American lead characters, but the characters were usually servants, with the exception of Amos 'n' Andy, which featured black characters in the roles of judges, businessmen, lawyers, and policemen. The show starred actress and singer Diahann Carroll, and ran for 86 episodes on NBC from Sep 17, 1968 to Mar 23, 1971.

Thelma Johnson Streat was the first African American woman to have a painting exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, in 1942.
