Peoples Perspectives;   While the Emmy Awards gave off the appearance of diversity, there has been a dearth of wins for African-Americans historically despite a slew of nominations. But after this most recent awards show, an African-American actor or actress has won at least one award in every category except for the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Emmy.

Diahann Carroll was the first Black actor or actress ever nominated in 1963, while Bill Cosby became the first Black winner of an Emmy in 1966.

Gail Fisher of the 70’s detective show Mannix, was the first Black actress to win the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series award in 1970.

NATIONAL ICE CREAM CONE DAY

National Ice Cream Cone Day is celebrated annually on September 22.

While there is some controversy as to who invented the ice cream cone, one of the earliest mentions of them showed up in French cook books around 1825.  They were originally referred to as “little waffles” rolled into a cone shape.

Ice cream cones first became popular in the United States in the late 1800s.  The earliest cones were rolled by hand.  The ice cream cone made its debut at the World’s Fair in St. Louis in 1904.  In 1912, an inventor from Oregon obtained a patent for a machine to make them.  He sold his company to Nabisco in 1928 and they still make ice cream cones today.

The ice cream cone continues to be a popular treat for children and adults alike as more flavors of ice cream continue to be made available to please our palates.
