Forbidden love

Entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. didn't care what his famous friends said - he wanted to marry actress, May Britt. At the time in 1960, interracial marriage was against the law in 31 states. Rumor has it that John and Robert Kennedy warned him against having the wedding before the 1960 Presidential election. The couple had three children before their divorce in 1968.
