Summary
An acclaimed stage performer, Dorothy Dandridge still struggled with the challenge of her color, in a time that wouldn't let some stars in by the front door. Yet against the odds, she beat out many more famous rivals for the role of Carmen Jones, becoming the first black woman ever nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award
