 In 1940, Hattie McDaniel was awarded Best Supporting Actress for her role in Gone with the Wind, becoming the first African American to win an Oscar. McDaniel had to get special permission to attend the ceremony, as the venue was a segregated nightclub, and she was forced to sit against a far back wall, away from the rest of the cast. This wasn't the first time she was met with prejudice for her work in the movie.

Learn why she was banned from attending the film's premiere in Georgia.
