Happy for her but that negro spiritual was a lot in a room full of saltines.

I was looking forward to her tap dancing after that damn song. Come on, people, sheesh!

I love the spiritual. It's who we are, and she got a standing ovation for it. She hasn't received her flowers since dream girls. Also, she was on the front lines of support for the fight against Aids. Blacks turned their backs on our race that had the deadly disease dying alone with no love or support from family and friends.

What in the cotton pickin' world was that all about? One step away from that ridiculous holy dance. I guess I'm just a different kind of darkie. I don't get it.

Fabulous. Excellent acceptance speech from a real actress who earned it by working year after year after year. And damn she looks good for someone who’ll be 70 years old in a few years. Black don’t crack.

Why a couple of y'all in here like you ashamed of spirituals?! Yes it takes us back to a horrible time in history but NEVER forget those spirituals kept our ancestors sane & gave them hope. Sheryl was clear & intentional in her delivery. We have a heritage. We overcame. That's something to be proud of. Maybe these kids would have more respect for themselves & their fellow brother if they had something to feel proud of...

Forty-four years ago Sheryl played in 'A Piece of the Action' with Sidney Poitier. In her first acting role, she gave one of the most memorable monologs on film. She's been laying it down ever since.

I love her hair piece! She's the epitomy of talent, class, beauty and charm 👌🏾
