This year the Oscar’s celebrated some first time African American award winners. But over the years, who have all accomplished this goal?

In honor of Black History Month, we honor those talented men and women that have earned an Oscar throughout the years. From Morgan Freeman being the oldest black actor to earn his award in 2004, to Regina King getting her first in 2019. We recognize these talented performers for their hard work and dedication.
