Tracee Ellis Ross Becomes First Black Woman to Win Golden Globe Award in 3 Decades

Tracee Ellis Ross Wins the Golden Globe for “Best Actress in a Television Comedy or Musical” and makes history.

The “Black-ish” starlet’s win makes her the first black woman to win the award in 35 years. That’s over 3 decades, folks. Is it starting to sink in that minorities are extremely underrepresented in Hollywood? For some of you, of course not.

Check out the acceptance speech below (and excuse the quality. Y’all know how YouTube be snatching up videos).

Prior to Ross, Debbie Allen walked away with the award…back in 1982. In her acceptance speech, Ross acknowledgedΒ the women of color who aren’t as visible in the media while expressing how honored she was to be a part of “Black-ish.”

Congratulations to Tracee Ellis Ross on her win!
