The Night Belongs To Hattie McDaniel


The first African-American actress to win an Academy Award (for her role as Mammy in Gone With The Wind) is, alas, no longer with us — but if she were, today would be her 116th birthday. Raise a glass — or perhaps some kind of spiked popsicle, since it’s so damn hot — in her honor tonight.

And now it’s time to rock out. Have a great weekend, everyone!
