It’s All Love? Pro-Black Men Who We’re Surprised Dated Or Married White Women

Harry Belafonte

“The King of Calypso” made a name for himself far outside just the entertainment industry. During the height of the civil rights movements, Harry Belafonte became a dear confidante of Martin Luther King, Jr., helping to provide financial support to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and other causes in the civil rights movements. After King’s assassination, Belafonte continued the push toward equal rights and even became an executor of King’s estate. Aside from civil rights issues, Belafonte has been outspoken politically, openly criticizing the Bush administration. Given Belafonte’s relentless racial activism, it might come as a surprise that he has had a number of relationships with white women, including with former dancer Julie Robinson and photographer Pamela Frank.
