Black American Firsts in Film and Theatre (70 person items)

"The “black Marilyn Monroe” became famous in 1954, in the title-role of Carmen Jones, Hollywood adaptation from Georges Bizet’s opera made only with black actors. Dandridge was the first black actress to be nominated for a Best Actress Oscar, but lost to Grace Kelly. She was also the first black woman to appear on a Life magazine cover. In 1960 she won the Golden Globe for the musical Porgy and Bess."
