'Julia' was a groundbreaking sitcom. It was the first TV series to feature an African-American woman as the protagonist. It was a pretty modest series (compared to the really daring shows like 'All in the family' or 'Maude'), but it's significant for its depiction of a black household.
The show starred the lovely Diahann Carroll as Julia, a widowed nurse who lives in an apartment with her young son Corey. She worked for a crusty but benign doctor played by veteran character actor Lloyd Nolan. Carroll won an Emmy for her work in 'Julia'.
The series originally ran on NBC from September 1968, through till the 1970-71 season.
