Woodrow Wilson Woolwine Strode was an athlete and actor. Strode was a college track and football star at UCLA, one of the first Blacks to integrate the NFL, a professional wrestler, a Golden Globe nominated actor, and a WWII veteran. He attended UCLA and played alongside Jackie Robinson and Kenny Washington, both who broke the color barriers of baseball and football in the 1940s. Strode joined UCLA’s Alpha Phi Alpha chapter. He is probably best remembered for his brief Golden Globe-nominated role in Spartacus (1960) as the Ethiopian gladiator Draba, in which he fights Kirk Douglas to the death.
If you saw the movie The Posse, Woody Strode was the old man at the end who was portraying the older version of the kid in the movie.

Legend. RIP

Carol Channing was well known for her performances on Broadway, film and television.She was a Comedian, Actress and Singer. Did you know Carol passed for white? At the age of 16, Carol learned her paternal grandmother was a black woman. Although, she knew the truth, Carol never shared it with anyone until at the age of 81 in her memoir “Just Lucky I Guess.” She kept her heritage a secret so she would not be typecast on Broadway and in Hollywood. Carol Channing publicly revealed her African-American ancestry in 2002.



When she admitted it…it didn’t seem surprising.

In my opinion Carol seemed to be “overly comfortable” with many Black entertainers of that period.

Take this pic of her and Ethel Waters.

She was always looking at them as family.

It is possible that even some if most may have already known too!

l recall seeing some photos where she reminded me a little of Diana Ross.

The
and the wide smile!

Some article was saying they were cousins!

I don’t know about that though.

I have read about others who may have passed as well…Ava Gardner and Clark Gable.





Channing Carson, her son.
