Hollywood has never had a lack of attractive, male actors and to my surprise, there are quite a few black heartthrobs dating back from the early 1900s to now. It was interesting to see a range of looks — from brooding and muscular to handsome and refined. Some of the latter pictures certainly gave me a stroll down memory lane. For some actors, I did not immediately recognize mass appeal, but between conversations with girlfriends and running across a 25-year-old Ebony magazine article entitled “Hollywood’s Hottest Hunks,” my list became a bit more redefined. I love that the legacy of these men has stood the test of time, blessing us with their talent and breaking barriers for generations to come.
