RUBY DANDRIDGE, Mother of Dorothy Dandridge

Wed, 1899-03-01

Ruby Dandridge was born on this date in 1899. She was an African-American entertainer.

Born in Wichita, Kansas, Ruby Jean Butler was the daughter of Nellie Simmons and George Butler. Her father was born in Jamaica in 1860 and came to the United States when he was a child. George Butler was a janitor at the Union National Bank, as well as a minister, a grocer, a school principal, and an entertainer, appearing before both Black and White audiences. Not much is known about her mother, Nellie, except that she was born in 1870, and had a mixed heritage of Spanish and Indian.

Together, Nellie and George had four children, three boys and one daughter. Ruby went to school in Wichita and from her father learned dancing, singing, acrobatics, horseback riding, and a love of performing. From the time she was a child she hoped to perform one day just like her father.

Her dream was put on hold when she married Cyril Dandridge in 1919, a union that was not happy. They lived with his mother and he did not have steady work to support them. Less than two years after they married, their daughter, Vivian, was born in 1921. The birth did not make their marriage better or settle the tensions in the home, and Ruby left. Still wanting his marriage to work, Cyril persuaded her to come back home and, even though Ruby was five months pregnant, she decided to leave her husband again, this time permanently. On November 9, 1922, Ruby gave birth to her second daughter Dorothyin Cleveland's City Hospital.

They divorced, after which she had a love relationship with a woman named Geneva Williams, who overworked and punished Ruby’s two daughters. As an entertainer, Ruby Dandridge is best known for her role on the radio show "Amos 'n Andy," in which she played Sadie Blake and Harriet Crawford. She also had a role in the 1959 movie "A Hole in the Head," in which she played Sally.

Ruby Dandridge died of a heart attack at the age of 88 in Los Angeles, CA., and is buried next to her daughter, Dorothy, at Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, CA.

Janelle Monae Explains the Lyrics from 'Dorothy Dandridge Eyes'

 Dorothy D & Harry B

Harry Belafonte, Dandridge's frequent co-star who played opposite her in "Carmen Jones," summed up Dandridge's problem as: "Right person, right place, wrong time." HBO tweaked his judgment and used the line in its promotion for the film as

"Right woman, right place, wrong time."

That one-word change reflected director Coolidge's view of Dandridge's life. "To me, this was the classic beautiful woman in Hollywood story," she says. "Dorothy's problem was worse, because she was black, but she was a woman who was used up by the system and then thrown away. You couldn't even put in a movie all the pressures those women were up against."

Perhaps it was the wrong time for a lot of women (and of course it's the tragic heroines whose myths endure). Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland succumbed to drugs and alcohol. Veronica Lake died alone and penniless.

"In Hollywood then, men ran the studios. Men ran everything. Women had no power. Dorothy could never have produced her own movie, the way I've been able to," Berry says. "Living Dorothy's life and making that movie has made me realize that I can't complain, because people who came before me had to overcome a lot more than I've had to face. The problem with Dorothy was even when she triumphed, it wasn't enough. When she got to the top, the view wasn't what she thought it would be."
