“This is for the women of color, and colorful people whose stories, thoughts and ideas are not always considered worthy and important….we see you,” she said while accepting the award.
“It is an honor to be on this show black-ish,” she said. “To continue expanding the way we are seen and known and to show magic and beauty and sameness of a story and stories that are outside of where the industry usually looks .”
Tracee is the first Black woman since Debbie Allen in 1983 to win the award.
