Perhaps best known for her Oscar-winning performance as Mammy in the movie classic Gone With the Wind, Hattie McDaniel has always been controversial. While her achievement bolstered the hopes of black Hollywood that the entertainment industry was finally ready to support more multidimensional, fully realized roles for blacks, screenwriters kept churning out roles that continued to denigrate the African-American experience. Though McDaniel's popularity should have increased after Selznick's masterpiece came out, as was the case for her white counterparts, it instead declined, as an increasingly politicized black audience turned against her. "I'd rather play a maid than be a maid," she answered her critics, but her flippant response belied a woman who was emotionally conflicted. Here, at last, in a richly detailed and incisive text by talented historian Jill Watts, is the story of a valiant woman who defied the racism of her time.
