#TSRBlackExcellence: Ruth E. Carter turns into the primary black costume designer to win a star on the Hollywood Stroll of Fame
Congratulations to legendary costume designer Ruth E. Carter, who made history again. On Thursday, she received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, making her the first black costume designer to receive a star and the second costume designer to receive a star on the Walk of Fame.
The historic moment was celebrated in a virtual ceremony, after which Ruth posed in a photo with her star and said, “Nice ceremony !! I am so glad you could join in !!! #AndThatsTheTruthRuth. ”
Ruth made history back in 2019 when she won an Oscar for her work in “Black Panther”. This made her the first black woman to win the costume design award. Her work has been featured in many classic films and we will see her work in the upcoming Coming 2 America.
Talking about getting her star, according to Variety, Ruth said, “The first thing I wanted to see when I moved to Los Angeles in 1986 was Hollywood Boulevard and the Walk of Fame. I think these stars are synonymous with Hollywood’s past and present. “
Some of the classic films Ruth designed for are School Daze, Do The Right Thing, Crooklyn, What Love Has To Do With It, Love & Basketball, B * A * P * S., “Malcolm X” and a long list of other films.
Congratulations to Ruth E. Carter for receiving her star.
