A 50-Year Interracial Marriage
Annie and Bobby have been together since 1965. Their marriage is a success by any standard, but it’s amazing they found one another to begin with, because as they say, they couldn’t have come from two more different worlds.
Annie was raised in Los Angeles among the Hollywood elite; in fact, she still has the Oscar her dad won sitting on her mantle at home. Bobby was raised poor, rural, and black. But they did find one another, and they fell in love, and as they said after the show, somehow they found the guts to be an interracial couple in the 60s.
Now, more than 50 years later, they’re still together, and as you’ll hear on the show, they’re still very much in love. Though they wouldn’t make too big a thing of that.
Today’s episode is simply about reflecting on 50 years together.
Let’s go to Annie and Bobby Jones.
