Jester Hairston - one actor who stuck with it

He was more famous as a conductor and arranger of spirituals, but he also did a good bit of acting on radio, television and the movies. Jester Hairston was married to the former Isabelle Margaret Swanigan for 47 years. I actually got to see him direct a master class on spirituals while I was in college.
