Credits and Source Information Photographs
I would like to thank my friend Mark Abernathy for the use of photographs from his vast Dorothy Dandridge collection. Without him, I'm afraid this might have been an all-text site!
I highly recommend Donald Bogel's book Dorothy Dandridge: A Biography (Amistad Press, 1997). It is an exhaustive work and I'm sure it will go down as the definitive biography. Buy it at Amazon.com!
I also found the following books helpful:
The Decline and Fall of the Love Goddesses by Patrick Agan (Pinnacle Books, 1979)
The Film Encyclopedia by Ephraim Katz (HarperPerennial, 1994)
Everything and Nothing: The Dorothy Dandridge Tragedy by Dorothy Dandridge and Earl Conrad (Abelard-Schuman, 1970)
Notable Black American Women edited by Jessie Carney Smith (Gale Research, 1992)
African American Women: A Biographical Dictionary edited by Dorothy C. Salem (Garland Press, 1993)
Preminger: An Autobiography (Doubleday & Co., 1977)
