But the “227” star added a bit of context about Ralph, who won for her role on the comedy series “Abbott Elementary,” which made it even more celebratory.
“Winning my Emmy was a career highlight, but it was also a lonely experience,” Harry wrote. “For 35 years I’ve been the only black woman to win Outstanding Supporting Actresses in a Comedy Series. But that all changes tonight… and it’s come full circle! #Emmys.”
She went on to tweet that the network initially wanted Ralph for the role of Sandra on “227,” which won Harry her Emmy.
“Barbara Howard on #AbbottElementary is another fabulous character we’ve been fortunate to watch her breathe life into,” Harry tweeted. “Congrats, Sheryl & welcome to the club! #Emmys #BlackGirlsRock”
