Pam Grier is an American actress.
She is the daughter of Gwendolyn Sylvia (Samuels) and Clarence Ransom Grier, Jr. Her parents are/were both black.
Pam has said:
People see me as a strong black figure, and I’m proud of that… But I’m a mix of several races: Hispanic, Chinese, Filipino. My dad was black, and my mom was Cheyenne Indian.
She has also stated that her maternal grandfather was a Filipino named “Raymundo Parrilla”. It is not clear if these statements have been documented/verified as accurate.
