Dorothy Dandridge on the Cover of a Magazine

As Dandridge's career rises, she appears on numerous magazine covers. As popular as she was becoming, overtly racist comments and actions follow her the rest of her career. She tells People Today in 1953 that, β€œTo be a siren of song, one needs more than talent, looks, and voice. One needs understanding of people. At first, I was afraid they wouldn’t like me. Then I realized the first step in that direction was to like them and to assume they would like me.” The magazine refers to her as a β€œbronze bombshell” and featured her on the back cover. Soon she'll be making history as the first African-American woman to grace the cover of Life Magazine.
