Good morning everyone! I want to share this talented man with you all. "Ernest Frederick Morrison was the first black child movie star signed to a long-term contract and is most famous for his role in the Our Gang/ Little Rascals series. Morrison was born on December 20, 1912 to Louise (Lewis) and Joseph Ernest Morrison, in New Orleans, Louisiana. He made his unofficial movie debut as an infant, filling in for another child that would not stop crying. He was given the nickname “Sunshine” by the crew, and later went on to use the names Sunshine Sambo, Little Sambo, Sunshine Sammy, Ernie, or just Sammy. Morrison made his official movie debut in 1916, in The Soul of a Child, at age three. From 1917 to 1922, Morrison appeared in a series of silent films produced by Harold Lloyd, alongside then-child actor Marie Osborne, produced in New York."www.blackpast.org/african-american-history/people-african-american-history/ernest-frederick-morri...en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunshine_Sammy_Morrison ...
