Pictured above: Hattie McDaniel well-known as being the fist African-American to win an Academy Award/Oscar for her role in “Gone With The Wind” alongside side her co-stars Vivian Leigh and Clark Gable.  During that time, the award ceremonies were still segregated and she was not allowed to sit with the white audience as she was the only African-American in the room.

  Although she won an award for her performance, the African-American community was not happy with the fact that they were be portrayed to be servants and maids by white filmmakers…which at that time was all that was available for the AA community.  By the 1890’s, her career was over and she had to find different kind of work so she took over hosting a radio show previously hosted by a white man called “The Beulah.”  She also made guest appearances on many other radio shows.
