Adoringly Dorothy Dandridge
Dorothy Dandridge on her historic Oscar nomination for Best Actress expressed that her heart, “Swelled with pride at the thought of what this means to me as an actress and for the significance the nomination has. It is the first time a Negro performer in a leading role has ever won this distinction. It gives me courage to go on with my acting career. I note with pleasure that the members of the Academy expressed their judgement solely on the basis of the performances. In viewing this, I hope that more Negro people will be employed in the motion picture industry.”
