Hattie McDaniel wins the Oscar on this day for her role as Mammy in Gone With The Wind. Imagine not being able to attend your own movie premiere and being forced to sit in the segregated section at the Oscars. Black History was made and America has never been the same since.
The owner of Hollywood Cemetary, Jules Roth, refused to allow Hattie McDaniel to be interred there, because they did not allow blacks to be buried there. Her second choice was Rosedale Cemetery, where she lies today.
