It was a big night for Tracee Ellis Ross and women of color as the actress won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for her role in Black-ish, the first black woman to win the award since Debbie Allen in 1983.
“It’s my first time here,” the actress said as she took the stage to claim her award. The Black-ish actress went on to dedicate her award to “all of the women, women of color, and colorful people, whose stories, ideas, thoughts, are not always considered worthy and valid and important.”

“I want you to know that I see you. We see you.”
Ross thanked her Black-ish cast members, adding, “It is an honor to be on this show, Black-ish, to continue expanding the way we are seen and known, and to show the magic and the beauty and the sameness of a story and stories that are outside of where the industry usually looks.”
