BHM: The Beautiful Dorothy Dandridge

Dorothy Dandridge

Dorothy Dandridge was an American actress born in 1922 in Cleveland, Ohio. She rose to the top of her profession with her first starring role and became the first black woman to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.  Even being an admired and loved actress and singer she still faced racism.  She starred in movies such as Carmen Jones, Island in the Sun, and Malaga to name a few.

 

I love her movies, and old holly pictures of her. You can find pictures of her on my wall.  A beautiful tragedy.
