Folks were shocked when Broadway actress Carol Channing claimed that her biological father was half Black in her 2002 autobiography Just Lucky I Guess. Channing said she was 16 when her mother told her that her father, George Channing, was the son of a German-American father and a Black mother. Carol maintains that she's "proud" of her mixed heritage. (Photo: Fredrick M Brown/Getty)
