Dorothy and Harold cutting their wedding cake. (September 6, 1942)

“I wasn’t ready for marriage, but this was a pretty girl. Beautiful. I think it was an ego trip for me. At the beginning, everyone wanting this pretty woman. But she wanted me. And I felt differently about her than all those other girls that I used to go with.” - Harold Nicholas

(L-R) Harold Nicholas, Fayard Nicholas, Geraldine Pate Nicolas-Branton, Dorothy Dandridge

“I didn’t treat her like I should have, as a loving husband should have treated his wife. Someone that he cared about and someone that he wanted to be with.” - Harold Nicholas on his marriage to Dorothy Dandridge
