DANCE DOROTHY DANCE!

£20.00

Interior featuring singer and actress Dorothy Dandridge, who sang at Harlem's Cotton Club and Apollo Theatre. She became the first black woman to be nominated for an Academy Award for best actress for her role as Carmen Jones. As an black singer in the 1930's, Dandridge confronted early on the segregation and racism of the entertainment industry. Despite all odds Dandridge seemed well on her way to becoming the first non-white actress to achieve the kind of superstardom that had accrued to contemporaries like Marilyn Monroe and Ava Gardner.
