The talent behind the scenes of "Black Panther" made history at the 2019 Oscars. But things changed with Black Panther at the 91 Academy Awards. Wow, this has been a long time coming. Carter was quick to give thanks to fellow Oscar victor, Spike Lee for giving her a start in 1988's School Daze, which he directed. It won for Costume Design, Production Design and Original Score.

"I stand here today because of this man who gave me a better perspective of life", she said, adding: "I'm stronger because Marvel gave me a chance". Mom, thank you for teaching me about people and their stories. During his speech, he dedicated his Oscar to his grandmother, whom he said told him that "if at first you don't succeed try, try again". "I'm mentoring in hopes of raising others up and give them hope".
