They received hate letters for being in love 50 years ago, but their interracial marriage is still going strong today.

Leslie Uggams, acclaimed for her role in the Deadpool series and a luminous seven-decade career, shares a remarkable love story with her husband, Grahame Pratt. Despite societal challenges due to their interracial marriage, they’ve thrived.

Leslie’s talent shone early, recording with MGM at 10 and studying at prestigious schools in New York. Her career soared with her own TV show in 1969. Love blossomed when she reconnected with actor Grahame Pratt in Australia. Despite her aunt’s caution against interracial dating, Leslie was captivated.

Their marriage in 1965 faced societal scrutiny, with Leslie receiving hate mail. Yet, they stood resilient. Leslie’s achievements include Emmy-nominated roles in “Roots” and “Backstairs at the White House,” while Grahame managed her career. They raised two daughters and now cherish a granddaughter, Cassidy.

After 55 years, Leslie reflects, “We laugh all the time — but it ain’t always roses. We enjoy a good time together.” Their enduring love defies societal norms and celebrates mutual support and joy.
