I really like this picture. Whenever we see pics of people doing black girls hair, there is always frowning and angry faces like its such a struggle.
Here the little girl is smiling and content while her mother(??) is gently and patiently tending to her hair.

"In the end, she [Dorothy Dandridge] may have believed she had failed, as she felt so often throughout her life. But a generation of Black Americans always remembered her accomploshments and her extraordinary presence on the cultural landscape. She had boldly cleared a path for the dramatic Black film actress and with her death, there was a void in American popular films. Later generations rediscovered her, and eventually influenced a new era of Black actresses and actors working in the movies, who understood her struggles and valued her achievements. She had done far more than she had ever realized." - Donald Bogle
