BIOGRAPHY:

Sammy Davis Jr. was often billed as the “greatest living entertainer in the world”.

He was born in Harlem, Manhattan, the son of dancer Elvera Davis (nee Sanchez) and vaudeville star Sammy Davis Sr.. His father was African-American and his mother was of Puerto Rican ancestry.

Davis Jr. was known as someone who could do it all–sing, dance, play instruments, act, do stand-up–and he was known for his self-deprecating humor; he once heard someone complaining about discrimination, and he said, “You got it easy.

I’m a short, ugly, one-eyed, black Jew. What do you think it’s like for me?” (he had converted to Judaism).
