Dorothy Dandridge

Dorothy Dandridge became the first African-American woman to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress.I was intrigued by her story. People are often fighting battles no one knows about.There's so many layers when you dig deep beyond the surface, more than a pretty face. I think Dorothy Dandridge story describes tragedy and triumph through experiences with abuse, racism, personal struggles, love, pain and success. I recommend the movie Introducing Dorothy Dandridge. The way her story was told in the film was very interesting and unique as a viewer you will grow with the character. A beautiful woman to salute and celebrate during Women's History Month.
