Gone With the Wind. The woman who played Mammy won an Oscar. Forget her name. Hattie someone.

She wasn't allowed to sit in the main part of the arena. She was segregated to the back.
Correct. There were a lot of exceptions made for Hattie McDaniel on that night in 1940, in a racially segregated hotel.

Sydney Poitier was indeed the first Black American to win the Best Actor Oscar for "Lilies of the Field". But, not the first to win the Oscar(he would have been only 13yo). In fact that was his only "Best Actor" Oscar.
