5 Fascinating Interracial Marriages in History

People’s perception about interracial marriages has drastically changed in less than half a century. Interracial marriages were made legal in the United States of America just 43 years ago and since then it has gained recognition in various parts of the world. Interracial marriages have become fairly popular nowadays but the scenario was quite different earlier. Here is a list of individuals who didn’t let the preconceptions of society hinder their decisions.

 

  1. Pearl Bailey and Louie Bellson in 1952: Bellson was a part of Duke Ellington’s band and was introduced to Bailey by a trombone player. After a courtship period of just 4 days, they got married in London. It was Bellson’s first marriage and Bailey’s third. Interracial relationships were nothing close to acceptable during those times and even Bellson’s inclusion in the music group surprised many.
