Not only is Ruth E. Carter the first black woman to win the Best Costume Design award at the Oscars, she’s the first black person to ever receive the honor in the Academy’s 91-year history. Before winning for Black Panther, Ruth designed for nearly fifty films including the classic Love & Basketball, The Butler,Selma, Teen Beach Movie, and twelve of Spike Lee‘s films. For her work on Black Panther, Ruth went to South Africa to get permission to incorporate traditional Lesotho elements into her designs.
