Biography

Brooksville, Mississippi, USA
African-American Frederick O'Neal was an actor and director of distinction, known for his exemplary work on stage and TV, but is hailed (and, arguably, better remembered) for his work behind the scenes as a revolutionary unionist and certifiable mover-and-shaker, earning major applause for his equally inspiring work and steadfast dedication to black actors everywhere by opening doors where no doors were before.

On the acting front, O'Neal made his New York debut in 1936 with the Civic Repertory Theatre. Read more...
