Disney Cast Member James Baskett

January 30, 1948, Walt Disney wrote a personal letter to Jean Hersholt, actor and president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, suggesting that James Baskett be awarded a special Academy Award for this work as Uncle Remus in Disney’s film, Song of the South.

Less than 2 months later, James Basket received an Honorary Academy Award for his performance as Uncle Remus. Baskett is the first African American male actor to win an Oscar.

Splash Mountain in Disney’s Parks is themed after Song of the South. CaribbeanDays can book your stay at Disney so you can ride Splash Mountain.
