WORLD'S FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN
TO WIN AN OSCAR

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the world's first African-American to win an Oscar?

Halle Berry recently made history as the first African-American woman to win an Oscar for Best Actress. However, Berry wasn’t the first African-American to hold that golden statue in her hand and she wasn’t even the first African-American woman to do it.

The first African-American to win an Academy Award was Hattie McDaniel. She won it in 1939 for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Gone with the Wind. However, that was not the only role that McDaniel held and although she was only given screen credit for about 80 films, she was actually in over 300. Hattie McDaniel has many credits to her name, two of which are stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
