R.I.P.: Carol Speed

 
Carol Speed
14 March 1945 – 14 January 2022
 
Unbelievably, her passing passed us by. Carol Speed, born Carolyn Ann Stewart, died at the age of 76 in Muskogee, Oklahoma, on 14 January 2022. She has since been cremated. She was the first African-American homecoming queen in Santa Clara County, California, at William C. Overfelt High School, which doesn't even bother to list her as a notable alumni. As Carol Speed, she went on to do a limited amount of notable Blaxploitation films during the 1970s, including one of our favorites here at a wasted life, trash-film auteur William Girdler's classic Abby (1974). A singer, actor and author, the cute, bubbly and talented beauty never truly had the acting career that she deserved.
