"Introducing Dorothy Dandridge" follows the life of Dorothy Dandridge and her struggles as a leading Black actress in Hollywood. Dorothy Dandridge was the first Black woman to be nominated for an Oscar in 1955, for "Carmen Jones," but she still faced racism and career setbacks before passing away at the age of 42. 

Many had forgotten Dorothy's story, and Halle fought hard to get this film made. She won a Golden Globe, SAG and Emmy award for her performance. And if it wasn't for this made-for-TV film paving the way, maybe Halle wouldn't have gone on to become an Academy Award-winning actress.

Watch a clip from the classic movie below.

Below is the synopsis of "Monster's Ball," per IMDB.

After a family tragedy, a racist prison guard reexamines his attitudes while falling in love with the African American wife of the last prisoner he executed.

Halle brilliantly plays a grieving mother in the controversial 2001 film. Many critics blasted the film's sex scene, but overall, Halle's performance was lauded and is considered another breakthrough role for the actress. She became the first Black woman to win an Oscar for Best Actress and gave one of the compassionate Oscar speeches ever.
