Carol Channing

Carol Channing is a legendary Broadway performer who had always been accepted as another glamourous white star. In her autobiography, released in 2002, she dropped a bomb when she revealed that her father was actually a bi-racial man. Her mother had revealed the secret to her when she was in college but Channing never said anything about it until she was in her 1980s, not wanting to jeopardize her career.
