Thursday Thirteen#15: 13 Favorite African Americans

(thanks to Sandra for the graphic)

Since it's Black History Month, I thought I'd post on my favorite African Americans, mostly actors. Here are 13 African Americans I love:

Bill Cosby

Morgan Freeman

Will Smith

Usher (ok, I mostly just think he is HOT!)

Condoleezza Rice

Leslie David Baker (Stanley from The Office)

Clarence Thomas

Louis Armstrong

Ella Fitzgerald

Stevie Wonder

Nat King Cole

Natalie Cole

James Earl Jones

There are plenty more, but I have to stop at 13. ;) Of this list, Bill Cosby is my all-time favorite. Next would probably be Louis Armstrong. I never get sick of his music.

Thanks for visiting! Have a good one.

Ohh, you have some good ones! Will Smith is hilarious :) I met Leslie David Baker in October- very nice guy!! I thought I had a picture...but I can't find it in my office post...

Do you watch the Office too? If you do, I have a whole Facebook picture album from meeting most of the cast! :D And, did you hear about the girl from our school who died on Sunday? Very sad :(

Morgan Freeman, Stevie Wonder, and James Earl Jones would be high on my list as well. I like how you admitted to why you included Usher on your list. There's nothing wrong with a little eye candy to liven things up a bit.

I love Bill Cosby too. And the others.

I still think Condy should've run on the republican ticket this year.

Blair Underwood!!!! Formerly of LA Law, now on The New Adventures of Old Christine. Love, love, love him.

Denzel Washington and Don Cheadle for looks and acting chops. MLK for inspiration.

Stanley the Manley! Leslie David Baker is one of the nicest guys I have ever met!

Bill Cosby and Will Smith are definitely favorties. I also really like Don Cheadle and Forest Whitaker.

A very good list. I would have included Jelly-Roll Morton, Eubie Blake and Scott Joplin, but everyone has his or her own suggestions.

Morgan Freeman is one of my very favorite actors!
