Black Men Make History At The Emmys!


Congratulations to two of our favorites who made history at the Emmy Awards last night! Donald Glover who is already a multiple Emmy winner became the first black person to win an Emmy for directing a comedy for his show “Atlanta.”

Sterling K. Brown also made history as the first black actor in 19 years to win the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role in “This Is Us.”

“Nineteen years ago, Detective Frank Pembleton held this joint, as impeccably played by Andre Braugher,” Brown said. “I just want to say, Mr. Braugher, whether it is at Stanford University or on this Emmy stage, it is my supreme honor to follow in your footsteps.”
