Sexuality[edit]

Nell Carter is listed as bisexual; could someone write a blurb about when she came out?--Bjeversole 07:56, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

The article orginally stated that she was sort of "outed" after her death and that many people didn't know she was living with a female lover (now referred to in the article as her "partner"); apparently someone felt that information needed to be removed...I will put it back in.

It's possible that someone removed it because they couldn't verify the information. I understand that Kaser was given custody of Carter's adopted sons, but other than that I haven't found any information about her "coming out". In any case, we don't need to speculate in the article. --Dystopos 14:32, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
There are references to her having a partner, Ann Kaser, in obituaries (http://www.jweekly.com/article/full/19245/-pop-soul-belter-nell-carter-54-devoted-convert-to-judaism-dies/) but nothing about her coming out in a very public way. Eudemis (talk) 21:57, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Main page[edit]

Could somebody flesh this out? This article is listed on the Main Page and it isn't even a 500 byte stub. Normally I would remove such an entry from the Main Page per the guidelines in Wikipedia:Selected Articles on the Main Page but for some reason I didn't. --mav

I changed my mind and replaced Nell Carter with another recent death article that is far better developed. --mav


Main Page[edit]

Footnote 2 is mistaken. I knew and worked with Nell Carter in Birmingham, Alabama's Society's Child Coffee House in 1968-1969, where she performed as the vocalist in owner David Walbert's progressive jazz band "The Renaissance Ensemble". The band did go to New York City in 1969, but she was singing as Nell Carter in Birmingham the previous year.

Picture quality[edit]

This is the best picture you can come up with? There are clearer pictures of Abraham Lincoln!! (--unsigned comment left 09:56, 30 November 2005 by User:194.29.36.107)

Brain Tumor?[edit]

  • There is a link from 'notable brain tumor patients' but no mention of cancer in the article. Either cite it or remove the link. (--unsigned comment left 20:57, 29 January 2006 by User:68.229.165.237)
    • I removed the reference. I did find one site that claimed she was among a number of celebrities that had suffered from brain tumors, but the site didn't cite a source. --Dystopos 06:13, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Intelligence[edit]

  • I'm a little surprised that the article didn't refer to Nell's intelligence. She was brilliant and you couldn't help but notice it the minute she began to speak. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Trent535 (talkcontribs)
    • From what I understand too, she was very lovable.

The Colbert Report is not a news program[edit]

On the April 24, 2008 edition of The Colbert Report, Stephen announced that he was upset with Jimmy Carter over his contact with Hamas and thus now only recognized Nell Carter as the 39th President of the United States. This has led to a small flood of editors adding this "information" to her biography. That's vandalism, folks. Not funny. - Dravecky (talk) 08:07, 25 April 2008 (UTC) Actually, it is pretty funny. 149.169.86.195 (talk) 14:55, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

A lesbian?[edit]

I didn't know she was a lesbian. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.190.218.100 (talk) 06:44, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Yet she was one anyway. --68.41.20.17 (talk) 05:53, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
