Praise

“Mr. Bogle continues to be our most noted black-cinema historian.”
–SPIKE LEE

Praise for Dorothy Dandridge

“An ambitious, rigorously researched account of the long-ignored film star and chanteuse . . . [Bogle] has fashioned a resonant history of a bygone era in Hollywood and passionately documented the contribution of one of its most dazzling and complex performers.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Donald Bogle, that pioneering safekeeper of the history of blacks in film, has completed the first definitive biography of Dandridge. Bogle’s epic biography depicts all the rich details of Dandridge’s life.”
Vogue
