Tell Me More is moving full speed ahead with its pre-Oscar multimedia series Divas On Screen, beginning today with a profile of the classic late entertainer Dorothy Dandridge. TMM producer extraordinaire Monika Evstatieva has assembled a dynamic series of commentaries by author Mia Mask focusing on five trailblazing actresses, all of whom have had a profound impact on the portrayal of black women on the big screen.

Tune in (and log on) daily this week to hear more about legendary performers (in order) Pam Grier, Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey and Halle Berry. And if you miss a day, no worries. We've put together a series hub that houses both on-air and online multimedia components for each installment. Just click here throughout the week for more.

Meet you back here tomorrow.
