Mr. Wonderful And Race

The only way to cure racism is love.

And lots of it.

Sammie Davis Jr. knew the antidote and he lived in lynching days.

Marilyn Monroe was his friend and acted as a beard for his relationship with Kim Novak.

Their affair almost got him killed by the orders of Herbert Cohn, a gangster Hollywood producer owning Novak's contract.

His sham marriage to Loray White saved him

Sammie needed no protection to wed May Britt.

A Swedish actress.

Swedes aren't American, but Mr. Wonderful was America at its best.

A Man of the people.
