It's the birthday of Soledad O'Brien


Happy birthday to Soledad!

Birthdate: September 19, 1966

Birthplace: Saint James, New York



Mother: Estella, a Black Cubana (Afro-Cuban), was a French and English teacher.

Father: Edward, an Australian (from Toowoomba, Australia) of Irish descent, was a mechanical engineering professor.

Soledad's parents, both immigrants, met at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland in 1958 and married in 1959. Interracial marriage was illegal in Maryland then, so the couple was married in Washington, D.C.
