Ruth Carter holds the historic distinction of being the first Black woman to win two Oscars in three years. In 2019, she won the Oscar for costume design for Marvel’s “Black Panther” and at this year’s Academy Awards, she won again for the film’s sequel, “Wakanda Forever.” In her acceptance speech, she thanked the Academy for recognizing the superhero that is a Black woman.
