In 1959, she debuted on Broadway as the character Beneatha Younger, a dignified, aspiring doctor in A Raisin in the Sun. Her stage performance earned her the 1959 Outer Circle Critics' Award and her first film appearance as the same character in the 1961 film version opposite Claudia McNeil, Ruby Dee, Ivan Dixon, and Sidney Poitier.
After Raisin in the Sun, Sands was then offered subsequent film roles, but her refusal to be typecast subjected her to less prestigious parts. Determined to bypass the industry's segregated climate, Sands sought to elevate her profession as an actress by performing abroad where she appeared in plays such as Caesar and Cleopatra, Anthony and Cleopatra, and Phaedra. She continued to perform in the United States as well and in 1964 she received a Tony nomination for her role in James Baldwin's Blues for Mr. Charlie. Sands's last significant Broadway performance was in the 1969 production of The Owl and the Pussycat opposite Alan Alda. She went on to appear in 13 episodes of the short-lived television series Julia (opposite Diahann Carroll) as Julia's cousin.
Determined to continue her career in film Sands, along with Ossie Davis, Brock Peters, and other notable performers and investors, founded in the early 1970s the Third World Cinema, a company developed to train black performers for every aspect of film production. Third World Cinema produced her cinematic star vehicle Georgia, Georgia, written by Maya Angelou. Sands portrayed Georgia, a confused black woman who becomes disconnected from herself, her people, and the world in her pursuit to find fulfillment as a performing artist. After its release, Georgia, Georgia was considered one of the most controversial films in the black community since Melvin Van Peebles Sweetback's Baadasssss Song.
Her last film Honey Baby, Honey Baby, also produced by Third World Cinema, was released after her untimely death. Third World Cinema also co-produced the major motion picture Claudine, in which Sands had originally signed to play the title role before pancreatic cancer claimed her life in 1973 at the age of 39. Sands died at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York.

A New York federal judge rejected Bobby Brown’s efforts to stop a film about his late daughter Bobbi Kristina set to air on TV One Sunday at 7 p.m.
Judge Analisa Torres said Brown’s concerns that the “Bobbi Kristina” film defames him is “speculative” because he has neither seen the film nor read the script.
Bobbi Kristina’s estate also joined the case.
“We are pleased with the court’s ruling and look forward to sharing this poignant look at the life of Bobbi Kristina Brown,” TV One said in a statement.
Brown said he believes the movie casts him in a bad light, showing him to be an abusive father. But the judge noted that in Brown’s 2016 autobiography, he admitted hitting the late Whitney Houston once in the face.
In an interview today, former head of TV One Brad Siegel – who left in July but helped shepherd the film – said he believes the TV movie treats Brown fairly.
The $2 million defamation case against TV One will still move forward with a conference meeting set for November 13.
