Georg Stanford Brown and Tyne Daly were together for only five months before they knew they wanted to be together forever.

In the 1960s, when they met and fell in love, marrying someone of a different race was frowned upon and even against the law.

It had only been a year since mixed-race marriage became allowed everywhere in the U.S. when they got married on June 1, 1966. In 1960, it was illegal in 31 U.S. states for two people of different races to get married.

He went from Havana to Harlem when he was only seven years old. He then moved to Los Angeles when he was 17 and ended school there, where he focused on theater arts.

Georg Stanford Brown first chose theater arts because he thought it would be simple. He liked it a lot in the end, though. He went back to New York to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and learn. He worked as a cleaner and made $80 a week to pay for school.

He met Tyne Daly, who would become his wife, while he was there learning. Philip Burton taught them both. Richard Burton learned from Philip Burton.

Most people know Brown as Officer Terry Webster from the ABC show “The Rookies.” From 1972 to 1976, the show ran.

Besides his part on “The Rookies,” Georg Stanford Brown was well-known for his portrayal of Tom Harvey in the miniseries “Roots.”

Brown played a lot of different parts in movies over the course of his acting and directing career. Some of the roles he played were Henri Philipot in “The Comedians” and Dr. Willard in “Bullitt.” He played Lew Gilbert in “The Jesse Owens Story” in 1984.

Before Brown married American singer and actress Tyne Daly, she was famous for playing Mary Beth Lacey on the TV show “Cagney and Lacey.” The show was a big hit, and Mary Beth Lacey was a tough cop who was also a mom.

When the couple got married, they had to deal with racism, but they decided to ignore it until they were on an episode of “The Rookies” together and kissed for the first time on TV.

Network officials wanted to get rid of the scene, but the couple didn’t give in. They taped and aired the piece without any problems from their friends and family.

Daly told the Washington Post in 1985 that she never thought being married to Brown was wrong because they were both black. She says that she doesn’t “like pigeonholes.”

She’s married to “another person out there.” “I stopped using categories a long time ago,” she said.

Georg Stanford Brown and Tyne Daly have three children together. The eldest was born on December 12, 1967, and her names are Alisabeth Brown. The youngest is Alyxandra Beatris Brown, who was born on October 1, 1985.

Tyne Daly said something interesting when their youngest daughter, Alyxandra, was born. In the “race” section of her birth document, she wrote “human.” In the “sex” section, she wrote “yes,” and in the “ethnic origin” section, she wrote “citizen of the world.”

Daly said this about her marriage to Brown: “I have a good and interesting marriage that has gone on for a long time.”

In 1986, Brown got a Primetime Emmy Award for Best Director in a Drama Series for his work as a director. This award was given to him for directing the last episode of “Cagney & Lacey.”

In the meantime, Daly kept working as an actress. A lot of Broadway shows had her as the lead. In 1992, she played Madame Arkadina in “The Seagull.” In 2006, she played Cynthia Nixon in the comic “Rabbit Hole,” and in 2011, she played Maria Callas in “Master Class.”

Sad to say, Brown and Daly got a divorce in 1990, after being married for 24 years. Their marriage had to end because they couldn’t work out their differences, even though they had been together for a long time.

This pair got a divorce after being together for more than twenty years, but their love and drive to get past prejudice are still inspiring.
