Beneath Los Angeles BENEATH

Hattie McDaniel

The first black Oscar© winner, for "Gone With the Wind," 1939

Although she is buried at Angelus Rosedale in downtown LA, it was actually her wish to be buried at Hollywood, a wish which was denied due to 1952 racism.

On the 47th anniversary of her death, this monument was unveiled at Hollywood Forever to partially right the wrong.
