An emotional Sterling K. Brown has made history again!

During Sunday night’s Golden Globes, This Is Us actor, Sterling K. Brown became the first black actor to win a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Drama series.

‘I’ve never been the first brother to do anything,’ Brown told a female reporter who brought up the historic moment.

“I was the fourth black student council president, I was the second black JV captain of my basketball team.”

‘Finally, to be the first of something is really interesting because I never considered myself to be a trailblazer. I just try to stay in my truth all the time. If I come from a place of truth, that’s all I can do.’ 

Also, watch Brown’s acceptance speech after winning the Globe.

“I’m being seen for who I am, and appreciated for who I am, so it makes it that much more difficult to dismiss me.”

Brown also made history during last year’s Primetime Emmys, when he became the first black actor in 20 years to win Best Actor in a drama for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us as well.
