Sammy 2 Cool

Posted on May 9, 2011


As a member of one of the coolest crews of all time, Sammy Davis Jr. wowed audiences with his dance moves as well as his voice. So to kick off our Respect His Cool section who better? His cool was one of the first to cross over and be accepted by white audiences. He met a lot of hurdles in his life. Despite being a large financial supporter of the civil rights movement Black America had issues with “The Candy Man”  His troubles can be summed up in a quote from a golf outing. When asked what is handicap was he replied “i’m a one eyed negro jew.”  Check out this dope performance from the legend.
