WATCH: Hattie McDaniel's Oscar Speech Is Colorized For The First Time (Exclusive)

The Smithsonian Channel's series America in Color is currently in its second season and has explored moments in American history through digitally colorized pictures. In their upcoming episode, "Hollywood's Golden Age," the series will show Hattie McDaniel's acceptance speech for her Gone with the Wind Oscar win in color for the first time. We have an exclusive clip from the episode below.

 

 

Here's the official description of the episode from The Smithsonian Channel:

"From humble beginnings, Hollywood becomes one of the world’s leading multi-billion dollar industries, cornering the market on glitz, glamour and fame. Powerful studio moguls control the business while stars such as Charlie Chaplin and Mary Pickford become global icons. As Hollywood’s power and influence grows, so do its critics, accusing the industry of being immoral and subversive. Television eventually arrives to challenge its monopoly, but Hollywood is resilient, adapting and evolving to remain America’s Dream Factory."

The "Hollywood's Golden Age" episode of America in Color will air Dec. 23 at 8 p.m. ET.
