Posting this may have huge ramifications for the racial reconciliation we’re trying to practice at Little Lights, but when our volunteer coordinator extraordinaire Mijin walked in the other day, Hattie McDaniel as Mammy is the first thing I saw.
One of Mijin’s life’s ambitions is to be a fashion icon, and I’ll be gol-darned if she isn’t well on her way. Honestly, I get dressed in the morning for you, Mij. And for Jane.
Hattie McDaniel, by the way, was the first African-American woman to win an Academy Award (1939’s best supporting actress for Gone With The Wind)! She’s a great lady to emulate.
