Acteur né le 30 mai 1902 (décédé à 83 ans)
Stepin Fetchit was the stage name of American comedian and film actor Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry.
Perry parlayed the Fetchit persona into a successful film career, eventually becoming a millionaire, the first black actor in history to do so. He was also the first black actor to receive a screen credit.
Perry's typical film persona and stage name have long been controversial, and seen as illustrative of negative stereotypes of African-Americans. Seen through a modern lens, Perry's "laziest man in the world" character can be "painfully racist" but also "subversive".
