American costume designer, Ruth Carter, has made history as she becomes the first Black woman to win two Oscars.
In 2019, Ruth Carter won her first Oscar Award for costume design for her work on Marvel’s “Black Panther”. She has also been recognized for the film sequel “Wakanda Forever.”
While giving her acceptance speech, she expressed her gratitude to director Ryan Coogler and asked late “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman to look after her own mother, who recently died at 101.
In her words:
”Nice to see you again,” Carter said as she took the stage. “Thank you to the Academy for recognizing the superhero that is a Black woman. She endures, she loves and she overcomes, she is every woman in this film. She is my mother. This film prepared me for this moment. Chadwick, please take care of Mom, Ryan, Coogler and Nate Moore, thank you both for your vision. Together, we are reshaping how culture is represented. The Marvel family, Kevin Feige, Victoria Alosno, Louis D’ Esposito, and their arsenal of genius thank you. I share this with many dedicated artists whose hands and hearts helped manifest the costumes of Wakanda and Talokan. This is for my mother. She was 101.”
