I think Dorothy Dandridge definitely paved the way for a lot of African American actresses, especially considering she was the first African American to be nominated for an Academy Award.

One of her quotes caught my eye.

"If I were white, I could capture the world."

I can only imagine how hard it was back then ... 'cuz it's still kinda hard today.
