The first time a Black woman won an Oscar was in 1939 (Hattie McDaniel). The second time we won was 51 years later in 1990 (Whoopi Goldberg). Only SEVEN Black women have won the Oscar for Best Actress/Best Supporting Actress. So yes, Lupita’s win is a HUGE victory. I feel like that’s my cousin up there! So proud! Congrats, Sis!
