At the 2017 Golden Globe awards Sunday, Tracee Ellis Ross got the award for Best Actress in a TV Comedy for her role in hit TV series, Black-ish. Her win makes her the first black woman to win the category since Debbie Allen in 1983. An excited and all blinged-out Tracee grinned while holding up her new award and gave an empowering speech that recognized and celebrated black women.
“This is for all the women, women of color, and colorful people. Whose stories, ideas, thoughts are not always considered worthy and valid and important. But I want you to know that I see you; we see you. It is an honor to be on this show, Black-ish. To continue expanding the way we are seen and known. And to show the magic and the beauty and the sameness of a story and stories that are outside of where the industry usually looks.”
