ShekharMoona: I hope someone is kind enough to turn in Hattie McDaniel's Oscar to Howard University where it rightfully belongs.

AttheflicksPod: Gone With The Wind (1939): Victor Fleming classic (with help from George Cukor and Sam Wood), with screenplay by Sidney Howard and based on Margaret Mitchell’s novel. Record breaking at the box office and the Oscars (incl Hattie McDaniel being the first black person to win one).

Son_of_Howard: The thing that trips me is the Oscars were stained long before Will Smith slapped Chris Rock. They were stained when Hattie McDaniel couldn’t accept her award. They were stained when the wins black people did win were for roles that put black people in a negative light.

ErnoNutting: ... natch Robin Nedwell & The fantastic Diane Keen and Trevor Howard Arrival of a pop star & wifey upsets local yokels in A Backwater Brass Band. And I've just spotted the National Treasure that was John le Mesurier aka Mr. Hattie Jacques seriously cuckòlded hubby.

DantzerJim: Would there be the same outrage if Moe Howard had slapped Hattie McDaniel or Franklin Pangborn or would it be seen as funny?

AnniAless: How could Howard lose Hattie’s Oscar

Up2wentyChief: So Howard University“lost” Hattie McDaniels’ Oscar after she donated it to the university?!

BettyannRochel5: Hattie McDaniel first Black woman actress that was given an Oscar in Hollywood,CA sat in the back during the Oscars, treated badly while attending the Oscars, later on Hattie McDaniel Oscar she donated to Howard University, til this day nobody seen or no the Whereabouts of it.

kobiegray1: Lmao the oscars talking about “a university losing Hattie McDaniel’s Oscar” is Howard university

lanadelnaye: I still can’t get over Howard “misplacing” Hattie McDaniel’s Oscar.

ArlingtonDiva: Fun Fact: Howard University lost Hattie McDaniels Oscar

lexicaaa: not them alluding to Howard losing Hattie McDaniel’s Oscar statue

Thee_Kentrell: Let me find out Howard University is the real life Devry….Where is Hattie’s Oscar?!?

KAlexIsWrite: Also, the Oscar museum segment said that Hattie McDaniel’s plaque was stolen, but wasn’t it donated to Howard in her will?

andscape: Howard lost it. Howard lost Hattie’s Oscar.

segmentedhuman: "This is the Oscars' ugliest moment" So, we're just gonna ignore Sacheen Littlefeather getting booed and mocked? Hattie McDaniel being made to sit in a segregated area? Howard University losing her Oscar? Calls for more representation ignored? Predatory directors and producers?

andscape: The story of Howard U and Hattie’s lost Oscar:

KAMRLocal4News: Hattie Howard-Collins remembers it all.

katwardphoto: Hattie Howard-Collins.

HerbieZiskend46: "Despite the blistering heat, the cramped space, and the hours-long wait to see Harris speak, Hattie Howard-Collins said she’d do it all again. For her, history was made that day."


BFSEngr: This week we are celebrating Hattie Peterson (1913-1993). Hattie is believed to be the first Black woman in the US to hold a civil engineering degree, which she received in 1946 from Howard University.

BFSEngr: Hattie Peterson was passionate about encouraging women to pursue engineering as a profession, creating an endowment fund at Howard University.

ashleyeleigh: If the Academy was real they’d replace Hattie McDaniel’s missing Oscar and give it to Howard like she wanted.

thurljawn: We still don't know who stole Hattie McDaniels Oscar from Howard University:

KiranBalak: This is Hattie McDaniels, first black to win as Oscar. Her death was as tragic as her life. She had 2 last wishes: 1) To be buried in the Hollywood Cemetery after death. 2)Her Oscar trophy to be gifted to d Howard University to inspire future generations

BlkAssFeminist: I’m learning so much from this book. Howard lost Hattie McDaniel’s Oscar? Sammy Davis Jr had a fake marriage to a Black woman bc he couldn’t leave the Beckies alone and the mob was after him? Boston used to be racially progressive? The tea is piping hot & I love it.

Geniusbastard: TIL Hattie McDaniel’s Oscar plaque (back then Best Supporting didn’t get actual Oscars) was given to Howard University. And they lost it.

ByClaytonDavis: "Before McDaniel died in October 1952, she specified that her prize should be donated to Howard University. There are countless myths about where it could be. Was it destroyed by racists? Or just misplaced at McDaniel’s estate sale?"

Troll2Trollarmy: Actress Hattie McDaniel left her Oscar to Howard University and came up missing. It has never been recovered. If anyone knows where this is there is a $1,000 reward for its return so her legacy is truly remembered.

SofiaVilaret: Unfortunately, the praise was not enough for Hollywood to change and Hattie was never offered the breakthrough part she deserved. To top it all, Howard University deemed her Oscar valueless. It went missing and it was never recovered.

StewartWood: Olivia De Havilland, who died a year ago this month, outlived her 4 fellow co-stars from 1939's "Gone With The Wind": Vivien Leigh: by 53 years Clark Gable: by 60 years Hattie McDaniel: by 68 years Leslie Howard; by 77 years

HMittelmark: The reason I wasn't credited was that we got into a big fight over the title. He was all, "Well, I'm John Cage, Howard. Deal with it," but I still think my title, "It Goes Without Saying," was better.

BrandonMH: Hattie McDaniel, whose 128th birthday would have been today, won an Oscar for GONE WITH THE WIND that has been missing for nearly fifty years, stolen from the Howard University library. Perhaps Edna May Oliver, feeling robbed that her perf in Ford's GUNS ALONG THE MOHAWK lost,

blackactioncoa: Day 4: Hattie McDaniel was the first Black American to win an Oscar for her role in the infamous Gone with the Wind. Even as the winner, the realities of Jim Crow laws forced her to sit alone in a dingy corner of the room. She donated her plague to Howard University.

RelevantPower: Happy Black History Month! This black history month, we celebrate Howard University graduate Hattie T. Scott, the first black woman to gain a bachelor's degree in civil engineering.

sme_engineering: Historians believe Hattie Scott Peterson was the first African American woman to gain a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from Howard University in 1946, paving the way for all future female engineers.

laurawanberg: hattie mcdaniel’s has been missing for 60 years..... when is howard university gonna see that again

daveweigel: Yes, the "how do Howard students feel about VP Harris" stories feel fluffy, but aren't they balancing the 100 million deep profiles of Trump voters? Even the Dem primary was shaped by Trump voters - candidates debating how they could win or unite them.

tierneysimon: It's amazing to think that Olivia de Havilland is 104 today but all her co-stars in Gone with the Wind died before 1970: Clarke Gable in 1960, Hattie McDaniel in 1952, Vivian Leigh in 1967, Leslie Howard in 1943.

FredTitmus: Olivia de Havilland's character not recognisable as possessing authentic human character traits. Leslie Howard's, vapid to the point of tedium. Hattie McDaniel gets a lot of good lines, and makes the most of them. 7/10. Needs editing.

FaithDanielleee: I still can’t believe Howard allegedly lost Hattie McDaniel’s Oscar LMFAOOOOO like that’s so on brand for them

PronouncedHare: Hattie McDaniels really deserved that Oscar, however. Leslie Howard was distractingly unbelievable. Olivia de Havilland was pretty good.

irelandpez: Clark Gable married the love of his life actress Carol Lombard during filming of GWTW. She died in a tragic plane crash a few years afterwards. He joined WW2, saw a little action and continued of make films. Like Vivien and Hattie and Leslie Howard, he’d die early in his 50s.

AsToldByKia: When Hattie does, she only had $10,000 to her name but owed the IRS more than $11,000. So her Oscar was seized and sold to pay off creditors. However, it DID end up at Howard University eventually where it was displayed in a glass class in the drama department. BUT...

AsToldByKia: So when Hattie was battling breast cancer, she had two wishes. The first was to be buried in Hollywood Cemetery and the second was for her Oscar to be donated to Howard University.

AsToldByKia: Hattie’s second wish was for her Oscar to be given to Howard University as they celebrated and held a luncheon for her after her Oscar win. Also, at that time, many places didn’t celebrate nor care to preserve black history and culture.

Coventry Patmore Poem
The Storm
 by Coventry Patmore

Within the pale blue haze above,
Some pitchy shreds took size and form,
And, like a madman's wrath or love,
From nothing rose a sudden storm.
The blossom'd limes, which seem'd to exhale
Her breath, were swept with one strong sweep,
And up the dusty road the hail
Came like a flock of hasty sheep,
