Oscar鈥檚 First Black Winner Accepted Her Honor in a Segregated 鈥楴o Blacks鈥 Hotel in L.A.

鈥淥n a February afternoon in 1940, Hattie McDaniel 鈥 then one of the biggest African-American movie stars in the world 鈥 marched into the Culver City offices of producer David O. Selznick and placed a stack of Gone With the Wind reviews on his desk. The Civil War epic, released two months earlier, had become an instant cultural sensation, and McDaniel鈥檚 portrayal of Mammy 鈥 the head slave at Tara, the film鈥檚 fictional Southern plantation 鈥 was being singled out by both white and African-American critics as extraordinary. The Los Angeles Times even praised her work as 鈥渨orthy of Academy supporting awards.鈥 Selznick took the hint and submitted the 44-year-old for a nomination in the best supporting actress category, along with her co-star, Olivia de Havilland, contributing to the film鈥檚 record-setting 13 noms.鈥 聽

鈥淢cDaniel then was escorted, not to the Gone With the Wind table - where Selznick sat with de Havilland and his two Oscar-nominated leads, Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable - but to a small table set against a far wall, where she took a seat with her escort, F.P. Yober, and her white agent, William Meiklejohn. With the hotel鈥檚 strict no-blacks policy, Selznick had to call in a special favor just to have McDaniel allowed into the building (it was officially integrated by 1959, when the Unruh Civil Rights Act outlawed racial discrimination in California).鈥

Hollywood鈥檚 highest honor couldn鈥檛 stave off the indignities that greeted McDaniel at every turn. White Hollywood pigeonholed her as the sassy Mammy archetype, with 74 confirmable domestic roles out of the IMDb list of 94 (鈥淚鈥檇 rather play a maid than be a maid,鈥 was her go-to response). The NAACP disowned her for perpetuating negative stereotypes. Even after death, her Oscar, which she left to Howard University, was deemed valueless by appraisers and later went missing from the school 鈥 and has remained so for more than 40 years. Her final wish - to be buried in Hollywood Cemetery - was denied because of the color of her skin.

Even after World War II, she continued to play underwritten maid parts in such films as 1946鈥檚 Song of the South, Walt Disney鈥檚 adaptation of the Uncle Remus stories, now considered a rare racist blot on the studio鈥檚 legacy. In her final years, McDaniel found success on the radio, taking over in 1947 from Bob Corley 鈥 a white voice actor who mimicked an African-American woman 鈥 as the title character in Beulah, a hit comedy series about a live-in maid. It was the first time an African-American woman starred in a radio show, earning McDaniel $1,000 a week. She was cast in the TV version of Beulah in 1951 but shot only six episodes before falling ill.鈥

A reminder that racial segregation was legal in California until 1959.

i saw this post earlier about therapists and it reminded me of my old therapist paul, who in my opinion is one of the greatest men alive and who did not put up with my bullshit for even one second

anyway i go in to see paul one week in the summer of 2016, and i鈥檓 doing my usual bullshit which consists of me talking shit about myself, and paul is staring at me, and then he cuts me off and says that he鈥檚 got a new tool for helping people recognize when they鈥檙e using negative language, and gets up and goes over to his desk

and i鈥檓 like alright hit me with that sweet sweet self-help article my man, because i鈥檓 a linguistic learner and whenever paul鈥檚 like here i have a tool for you to use it鈥檚 pretty much always an article or a book or something

paul opens a drawer, takes something out, and turns back around.聽i stare.

i say, paul.

is that a nerf gun.

image

yeah, says paul.

i say, are you gonna shoot me with a nerf gun in this professional setting.

he happily informs me that that鈥檚 really up to me, isn鈥檛 it. and sits back down. and gestures, like, go ahead, what were you saying?

and i squint suspiciously and start back up about how i鈥檓 having too much anxiety to leave the house to run errands, like it was a miracle to even get here, like i鈥檝e forgone getting groceries for the past week and that鈥檚 so stupid, what a stupid issue, i鈥檓 an idiot, how could i鈥

a foam dart hits me in the leg.

i go, hey! because my therapist just shot me in the leg. paul blinks at me placidly and raises an eyebrow. i squint again.

i say, slowly, it鈥檚鈥 not a stupid issue, i鈥檓 not stupid, but it鈥檚 frustrating me and i don鈥檛 want it to be a problem i鈥檓 having.

no dart this time. okay. sweet.

so the rest of the hour passes with me intermittently getting nailed with tiny foam darts and then swearing and then fixing my language and, wouldn鈥檛 you know it, i start liking myself a little more by the end of the session, which is mildly infuriating because paul can tell and he鈥檚 very smug about it聽

anyway i leave his office and the lady having the next appointment walks in and i hear what鈥檚 all over the floor? and paul very seriously says cognitive behavioral therapy tools.

The 鈥淚 won鈥檛 hesitate, bitch鈥 vine but @ friends who don鈥檛 love themselves

Trove of Jewish artifacts discovered beneath a synagogue destroyed by Nazis during WWII
https://www.livescience.com/judaica-buried-artifacts-polish-synagogue.html
<p><a href="https://jewish-privilege.tumblr.com/post/190744124432/trove-of-jewish-artifacts-discovered-beneath-a" target="_blank">jewish-privilege</a>:</p><blockquote> <p>A historic synagogue near Krak贸w, Poland, was mostly destroyed by Nazis during World War II, but a secret hoard of precious ritual objects that was hidden there remained undetected and undisturbed 鈥 until now. </p> <p><b>Recently, restorers at the Old Synagogue, an 18th-century temple in Wieliczka, Poland, unexpectedly found a cache of Jewish artifacts and other silver items in a large, wooden crate that had been concealed under the floor. </b> They uncovered the crate while digging a hole to test the soundness of the building鈥檚 foundation, <a href="https://www.thejc.com/news/world/judaica-experts-hail-amazing-discovery-of-treasure-while-digging-under-poland-synagogue-1.495926?fbclid=IwAR0iFfeiBfZ6zUWXz9if93hy9aaFAUZNSJiwrKwOGMYGq4akG4KOVvUlCig" target="_blank">the Jewish Chronicle reported</a>.</p> <p><b>The box 鈥 which measures about 3 feet high, 2 feet wide and 4 feet long (80 by 70 by 130 centimeters) 鈥 was crammed with around 350 objects, including a silver goblet with flowery designs, bronze vases inscribed with Hebrew writing and silver-plated candlesticks, according to the Chronicle.</b></p> <p>Also among the artifacts were two menorahs (nine-armed candelabras that are lit during <a href="https://www.livescience.com/61073-hanukkah-history-traditions.html" target="_blank">Hanukkah</a>), two rimonim (decorative ornaments that crown a Torah scroll) and an ornate silver plaque that hung at the front of a Torah, Polish news outlet <a href="https://krakow.wyborcza.pl/krakow/7,44425,25591731,odkryli-skrzynie-pod-podloga-synagogi-a-w-niej-kilkaset-cennych.html?disableRedirects=true" target="_blank">Gazeta Wyborcza reported</a>. On the plaque were raised images of lions on pillars holding a crown over the Ten Commandments, and an attached silver chain led to a yad, a ritual pointer used for reading the Torah. </p> <p><b>Time had rotted the wooden frame of the hidden box, but the objects inside, packed tightly together, were in good condition. Most of them are thought to date to the 19th century and would have been used in religious rituals, though there were some unusual exceptions: 18 badges from military caps of infantry officers in the Austro-Hungarian army. The badges bore the initials of Austro-Hungarian emperor Franz Joseph, who ruled from 1848 until 1916, according to Gazeta Wyborcza.</b></p> <p>One possible explanation is that military caps were used to line the box and protect the ritual objects at the time when they were packed up and buried. But the fabric later rotted away, leaving only the badges behind, Micha艂 Wojenka, a researcher with the Jagiellonian University Institute of Archaeology and leader of the investigation of the artifacts, told Gazeta Wyborcza.</p> <p>When the box was hidden and who concealed it remain unknown. <b>However, further investigation of the religious artifacts could reveal clues about individuals in Wieliczka鈥檚 Jewish community, as ritual objects are often inscribed with the names of the people who donated them</b>, according to the Chronicle. </p> <p><b>Approximately 1,135 Jews lived in Wieliczka according to records from the 1920s, but most of the community was deported and murdered during World War II, and few who survived returned to the city after the war ended, the Chronicle reported.</b></p> </blockquote>
