On struggling with being darker skinned black, "… And my mother again would say to me, "You can’t eat beauty. It doesn’t feed you." And these words plagued and bothered me; I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be. And what my mother meant when she said you can’t eat beauty, was that you can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul.”- Lupita Nyong’o

"A 5-foot-5 honey colored woman, Dorothy Dandridge was a ravishing beauty who had sensual swagger. She became the silver screen’s hottest Black sex symbol, and was described at one time as one of the five most beautiful women in the world. Her beauty, grace, good singing voice and acting ability all came into play during the transformation of her life into a classic Hollywood tale—one with bittersweet mixture of joy and pains."
