Debbie Allen makes history by becoming the first black woman to receive the governor’s award at the Emmys.

via CNN:

The woman who went from a dancer to a choreographer, actor and a famed TV director thanked everyone from Captain Kangaroo to Shonda Rhimes for helping her career.

And she was determined to get her full speech heard.

“Honey turn that clock off, I ain’t paying no attention to it,” she said as they tried to count her speech down.

Allen ended her acceptance speech with a message.

“Let this moment resonate with women across the world, across this country and across this world,” she said. “From Texas to Afghanistan … and also young people who have no vote, who can’t even get a vaccine, they are inheriting the world that we leave them. It is time for you to claim your power, claim your voice, say your song, tell your stories,” she said. (LoveBScott)
