Artist's Description

Actress Hattie McDaniel’s portrayal of Mammy lead to the first Academy Award won by a black actress. This scribbled try to catch the moment and emotion of Mammy as she tried to tell Scarlett her mother had passed away

Look and watch as darkness, fills up the skies
An agony of tears melt down my cheeks
And she waves charcoal grave ashen good-byes

The heavens charring black fumes stings my eyes
As flame and smoke consumes, my small world reeks
And she waves charcoal grave ashen good-byes

I Can’t move, I can’t breath, stunned with surprise
Against the onslaught of heat my fear leaks
Look and watch as darkness, fills up the skies

The earths scorching rebuttal where hope lies
The home fires of my heart’s havoc wreaks
And she waves charcoal grave ashen good-byes

The storm’s blanket smothers smoldering eyes
Inside deadened pyres no longer speaks
Look and watch as darkness, fills up the skies

At my home’s decimated lonely demise
Dead icy tears skates numbly down my cheeks
Look and watch as darkness, fills up the skies
And she waves charcoal grave ashen good-byes
