Female Black Historians Criticize Movie “The Help”

Spencer won for Best Supporting Actress in a film for her role as a maid in the Civil Rights Era movie “The Help.”

CNN reports that Spencer quoted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in her acceptance:

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance.

Although “The Help” characters are fictional, Spencer says that the narrative hits home for real people:

The narrative itself is part of our fabric. It’s important to keep the younger generation abreast of how far we’ve come, because this is really foreign to them.

The Globes are the unofficial launch of Hollywood’s movie award season, which culminates six weeks later with the Academy Awards. The Oscar nominations won’t be announced until later this month.
