A president dies, new nations are born, the MLB All-Star Game goes indoors, and a jam band performs for the last time, all on this day.
2004: Actress Isabel Sanford, best known for her role as Louise "Weezy" Jefferson on the sitcoms "All in the Family" and "The Jeffersons," dies at age 86 in Los Angeles, California. In 1981, she became the first black actress to win a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. The award was one of seven Emmy nominations she received for her role on "The Jeffersons," which also netted her five Golden Globe nominations.
