Guess the historical figure

Who am I?

Born on this day in 1893, I worked my butt off to have my voice heard. However, being the first American black woman to sing on the radio was only my first stop on the color-barrier-breaking train. In 1939, I won an Oscar for my role in Gone with the Wind, the first for an African-American.
