Happy Birthday to the beautiful, talented, Sultry Trailblazer Dorothy Dandridge!! November 9, 1922 – September 8, 1965) was an African-American film and theatre actress, singer and dancer. She is perhaps best known for being the first black actress to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the 1954 film Carmen Jones.
Good morning! Last night before going to bed, I read this article I found in The Guardian online. “Where are the black ballet dancers?” I’ve got much to say about this. But for now, I’ll just post a couple of pics that speak for themselves!
