In 1954 she debuted on Broadway in House of Flowers and starred in an all-Black film adaptation of Carmen. Over her 40-year career, Carroll has won a Tony Award (No Strings, 1962) and an Emmy and Golden Globe for Julia; she was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for Claudine (1974) and for a second Emmy for her guest role on A Different World (1989).
