Dorothy Dandridge - The Wonder Child
by Karen Burroughs Hannsberry
The Wonder Children toured the South for several years, until 1930 when the family moved to California, settling in a $40 a month apartment in Los Angeles. Once there, The Wonder Children continued to perform for churches and benefits, and later, Dorothy and her sister joined with a third girl, Etta Jones, forming the singing group, "The Dandridge Sisters." After winning first place in a talent contest sponsored by a Los Angeles radio station, the girls were hired by a local circus and traveled with the troupe to Hawaii. Later, they also toured the country and recorded with the Jimmy Lunceford band and performed at the Cotton Club with jazz great Cab Calloway.
In 1936, the Dandridge Sisters made their film debut in Paramount's The Big Broadcast of 1936, performing in a song-and-dance number with Bill "Bojangles" Robinson. The following year, the girls appeared in the Marx Brothers' feature, A Day at the Races (1937), Columbia's It Can't Last Forever, with Ralph Bellamy and Betty Furness, and the Warner Bros. Going Places (1939), starring Dick Powell and Anita Louise. After the latter film, the trio embarked on a frantic schedule which included performances with Bill Robinson and Louis Armstrong at the Strand Theater, and a European tour with comedian Jack Durant and the Jack Harris band.

Dorothy Dandridge
She was a beautiful actress and singer whose star shone too briefly. Dorothy Dandridge, a fragile boned beauty with skin often described as "cafe au lait", was sadly a victim of her own circumstances. She rose to the top of her profession with her first starring role and became the first black woman to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. But, just as fast as her success was achieved, so did it begin to fade. She knew it was hard, close to impossible, for a black actress to maintain a long running career in Hollywood because the roles were simply not there. She once said, "If I were white, I could capture the world". Dorothy had the drive and the talent to make it but the color of her skin held her back and her life soon began a downward spiral which in the end turned tragic.

NAME: Dorothy Dandridge BIRTH DATE: November 9, 1922 FAMILY BACKGROUND: Dorothy Dandridge was born in Cleveland on November 9, 1922 to Ruby and Cyrus Dandridge. She had one older sister, Vivian Dandridge. Dorothy was raised by her mother and her mother's friend, a woman by the name of Geneva Williams. LIFE HISTORY AND DESCRIPTION OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS Vivian and Dorothy performed as children. They had an act called The Wonder Children. Their act included singing, dancing, acrobatics, and skits. In the summer of 1938 they were booked at the Cotton Club. They performed along with Etta Jones and were known as the Dandridge Sisters. Dorothy met Harold Nicholas, the youngest brother in the famous Nicholas Brothers act, while performing at the Cotton Club. They were married in 1942. Dorothy was 19 years old at the time.

Dorothy soon discovered that her daughter had brain damage and eventually Dorothy had to put her in someone else's care. Dorothy eventually divorced Harold and pursued her career.

    Dorothy Dandridge
    Singer / Actor Born: 9 November 1922 Died: 8 September 1965(drug overdose) Birthplace: Cleveland, Ohio Best known as: Star of the movie Carmen Jones Dorothy Dandridge is the Oscar-nominated actress whose career as a leading lady was curtailed by racism and personal problems in the 1950s. As teens she and her sister Vivian were part of an act known as the Dandridge Sisters; they were good enough to reach New York's famous Cotton Club, and from there Dorothy worked her way into small movie parts in Hollywood. She married dancer Harold Nicholas of the Nicholas Brothers in 1942, but it wasn't until they divorced in 1949 that Dandridge's career really took off. A charismatic and striking beauty, she began touring as a nightclub singer. Her big Hollywood break came when she starred as the sultry heroine of the 1954 film Carmen Jones , an adaptation of the Bizet opera Carmen . The film was a hit, and Dandridge became the first African-American woman ever nominated for an Academy Award as best actress. (

Had she been born 20 years later, dorothy dandridge would no doubt be one of the most wellknown actresses in film history. She was that talented.
One of the Finest Actresses to Grace the Silver Screen!
Dorothy Jean Dandridge was born in Cleveland, Ohio on November 9, 1922. Under the prodding of her mother, Dorothy and her sister began performing publicly usually in black Baptist churches throughout the country. Her mother, an entertainer herself and the daughter of Ruby Dandridge, an actress from Kentucky, would often join her daughters on stage. As the depression worsened, Dorothy and her family picked up and moved to Los Angeles where they had hopes of finding better work, perhaps in film. Her first film was in the Marx Brothers comedy, A DAY AT THE RACES in 1937. It was only a bit part but Dorothy had hopes that it would blossom into something better. But because she was a black woman in a very prejudiced society, she didn't land the roles that were readily available to her white counterparts. She did not appear in another film until 1940 in FOUR SHALL DIE. The role was nothing great other than to establish the fact that she was very beautiful and talented. Her next few roles in the early forties included films such as BAHAMA PASSAGE (1941), DRUMS OF THE CONGO (1942), and CHANGE OF HEART (1943). There were others in between, of course, but they were the usual black stereotypical films for women such as Dorothy. Not only was she a talented actress, but she could also sing which was evident in films such as ATLANTIC CITY (1944) and PILLOW TO POST (1945). This helped to showcase her talents as a singer and brought her headline acts in the nation's finest hotel nightclubs in New York, Miami, Chicago, and Las Vegas.
