Best Answer

Hattie McDaniel who became the 1st Afro-American to win an Oscar in 1939 for Best supporting actor award came at a time when a vast majority believed in the white supremacy & had reservations against blacks. Therefore David O.Selznick was pressurized by the Governor of Atlanta that she didn't attend the world's greatest premier being held at Atlanta. Therefore she was not allowed to attend the film's Atlanta premier & at the Academy awards she & her husband had to sit in the back of the room at a table reserved only for them. Such was the plight of the pre-civil rights movement in the US.
