While this year gave us #OscarsSoWhite, the Tony Awards gave us divine diversity and #BlackExcellence.

2016 noms marked a record 14 nominations for performers of color, including 16 noms for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hopera Hamilton. Most important, in the first time in the award show’s history, all four Tonys for roles in musicals were awarded to actors of African descent.
