Comments
Influential blues/folk singer and guitarist. In the 1940s, White was perhaps the closest African-American friend of President Franklin Rossevelt. In the 1950s, White's activism for civil and human rights made him a target of the House Un-American Activities Committee in front of which he testified, denouncing Communism. Although a "friendly" witness, White's testimony led to his blacklisting.
