Dorothy Dandridge

She stood up for her rights and she would not perform or act in a movie if they would not give her equal rights.

Dandridge was the first black actress nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her starring role in the 1954 film Carmen Jones.

She was also the first black woman on the cover of Life magazine and is still one of the world’s most celebrated beauties.
