Ethel Waters was the second black actress ever to be nominated for an Academy Award, and the first to be nominated for an Emmy. But as she grew older, the roles—and subsequently her legacy—dwindled. It’s a continued fact of life for women in show business, and one to which Atlanta actress Terry Burrell can relate.
