Dorothy Dandridge Marathon

Hello all!

You may or may not know this, but I am a huge Dorothy Dandridge fan. I've been a fan since I was about eight years old (when Introducing Dorothy Dandridge was released on VHS and my mom ordered it from Columbia House--throwback, haha). But 'anywho', this coming Saturday would have been Ms. Dandridge's 91st birthday and I personally will be celebrating throughout the week (as time permits for me). 

Throughout the week, I will be watching Dottie's films (some on DVD, others online) and will be working on a few other things. 

With all of that said, would you like to join me (and countless others) in celebrating Ms. Dandridge?
