First Time For Everything! Celebs Who’ve Cemented Their Places In History!

May 27, 2012 ‐ By Drenna Armstrong

It certainly doesn’t have to be Black History Month to celebrate the achievements of some of yesterday’s, today’s and always classic superstars. This time we take a quick journey in the entertainment and sports fields (with maybe a little taste of “spice” on one or two of them). Of course, you’ll know some of them but what I’d REALLY love is if you’d add some in the comments section that maybe some of us didn’t know. Each one teach, one!

    Halle Berry was not the first African American woman to win an Oscar. It was Hattie McDaniel for her role as “Mammy” in Gone With The Wind. Although there is a difference, of course Hattie won for best supporting actress, I still feel that it should be known that she was the first African American to win an Oscar, period.

  • I feel so proud to be represented by these beautiful women of color. These ladies are class acts. It’s difficult to live such a public life and be down to earth. With the exception of a few blunders and faux pas, these women have done an extraordinary job. Thanks to them for paving the way for others.

    Great article!…..MN its too annoying to constantly click on the pages and as a suggestion you should really think about changing the way you set up your articles….I think its safe to say many people are getting kind of tired……I know I have.
