Laz Alonso

The Jumping the Broom star is Afro-Cuban by blood, but doesn't let labels identify him. “I always like to say that whether you’re African-American, Afro-Jamaican, Afro-Haitian, Afro-British, Afro-Cuban, Afro-Panamanian, whatever — Black is Black,” says Alonso. "I have a Cuban influence from my ethnicity, so I feel 100 percent Cuban and 100 percent Black and nobody can take that away from me."
