This is a video I posted to NYCreative celebrating the induction of the Hattie McDaniel Commemorative Stamp given by the United States Post Office back in January. Hattie McDaniel was the first African American to win an Academy Award for her role in the 1939 film, Gone With The Wind. To learn more about Ms. McDaniel and her contributions to the entertainment industry check out the original post.


  1. It's so great that you have this tribute to such a legend on video... an important moment in history.

  2. I was glad to be given the opportunity to capture it, especially her Oscar speech. Considering the tenor of this site, I figured it befitting.

  3. ok, ive worked my way backward through the posts here and I love the variety of material! really nice video!

  4. Thanks, Trine! I guess as long as you see everything it doesn't really matter which direction you go in.
