    Hattie McDaniel honored on stamp

    HATTIE MCDANIEL HONORED ON STAMP.
    The first African-American to be nominated and win an Oscar, Hattie McDaniel was honored as best supporting actress for her role as Mammy in Gone With the Wind (1939). This year’s Black History Month theme is “Celebrating Community: A Tribute to Black Fraternal, Social, and Civic Institutions.” The Hattie McDaniel stamp features her in the dress she wore when she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in February 1940. The Hattie McDaniel stamp will be issued today in Los Angeles. Black History Month launches nationally Feb. 1.

    It is quite beautiful, thank you so much for your attention and kind words.
    Here's a bit more on her extrordindinary life from turnerclassicmovies.com

    Biography
    "The first black woman to sing on the radio in the USA, Hattie McDaniel was also much in demand to play benevolent maid/housekeeper types in Hollywood films of the 1930s and 40s. She was also the first African-American performer to win an Academy Award--for her memorable supporting role as Mammy in "Gone With the Wind" (1939)--and later went on to play the title role in the early 50s sitcom, "Beulah"."
