I Thought They Were Black!

The ridiculous and tragic cultural lines keeping American society apart started to be erased the minute whites and blacks started listening to each others’ music — Elvis “sounded black,” to radio listeners, while Chuck Berry “sounded white.” But by the ’60s, a whole generation of suburban white kids had grown up in love with R&B, and the soul music they made was authentic enough to sound like they’d come by it naturally… and that was because they had. Get shocked by this list of “minor” white artists who many people have assumed were black. Next week: Black artists who crossed the color line coming the other way!
