dorothy dandridge- the first acadamy and golden globe nominated african american actress :)

This is such a CLASSIC photo! FABulous! :Dorothy Dandridge from Cleveland, Ohio,  sang at Harlem's Cotton Club and Apollo Theatre and became the first African-American woman to be nominated for an Academy Award for best actress. Many years passed before the mainstream entertainment industry acknowledged Dandridge's legacy and later portrayed in 1999 by Halle Berry in 'Introducing Dorothy Dandridge'.
