      Hattie McDaniel (June 10, 1895 – October 26, 1952) became the first black performer to win an Academy Award, which she received for Best Supporting Actress as Mammy in Gone With The Wind (1939). She earned her keep as a professional singer/songwriter, comedienne, stage actress, radio actress, and television star. Like fellow black performer William Walker [see above], she was a child of former slaves, and she too was a pioneer who helped paved the way toward equality in America for people of all walks of life. According to her Wikipedia page, of the approximately 300 films in which she acted, she was only listed in the credits for 80 of them. Her credited career spanned from 1939 to 1952, including almost 100 film and television productions. Today, she has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame [one for radio and one for film], is listed in the Black Filmmakers Hall Of Fame, and has a postage stamp bearing her likeness [the first black Oscar winner to be given such an honor].

Hattie was also the first black woman to sing on the radio in America. This all happening in an America that was racially segregated in virtually every respect.
