Famous Black Twins

Jamillah Ali


Rasheda Ali

They look alike. They talk alike and sometimes, they even think alike.

They are identical twin sisters Jamillah Ali and Rasheda Ali-Walsh, daughters of boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

Tamera Mowry


Tia Mowry

Identical twin Tamera Mowry starred as Tamera Campbell, opposite her sibling Tia, on the popular sitcom Sister, Sister -- both in its original ABC Friday-night run and later during its four-year stint on the WB network.

This stardom arrived at the tail end of several one-shot prime-time series appearances and commercial appearances that began during the actress' preteen years.

Derell Brittenum


Terell Brittenum

One American Idol mini-controversy apparently wasn't enough for Terrell and Derrell Brittenum, the Memphis twins that were disqualified from the show's fifth-season Hollywood Round after identity theft charges surfaced.

Ronde Barber


Tiki Barber

Tiki and Ronde Barber have been teammates since their beginning. As identical twins, they have never known life without their special bond.
The Barber brothers were born prematurely and suffered from febrile seizures. Because of this, their mom was told not to expect her boys to be able to play as other children. But this inspiring lady was determined to help her sons be all they could be. Ronde and Tiki and their mom proved the doctor wrong. The boys were not only good students, but excellent athletes.

D' Lila Star Combs


Jessie James Combs

D’Lila Star and Jessie James Combs turn three today (Dec. 21). According to their dad Sean Combs, the girls are pretty demanding.

“They’re talking a lot more and they’re very demanding,” says the Grammy-winning hip-hop mogul. As for what they demand from their dad: “Just time,” he says. ” ‘Sit down. Don’t go anywhere, stay here, do this.’ They give me a lot of orders.”

Peter Imafidon


Paula Imafidon

Nine-year-old twins are expected to become the youngest pupils to be admitted to a secondary school.

The so-called “wonder twins”, who come from a family of high achievers, set two world records when they passed A/AS-level maths papers. They became the youngest candidates to pass A-level maths and were also the youngest school pupils to do so, as the previous record holders had been taught at home.

Harris Sextuplets

The Harris sextuplets -- Kiera, Kalynne, Kaleb, Kobe, Kieran and Kyle -- were the first surviving set of African American sextuplets. They were born in Alabama in 2002. Another set of African American sextuplets were born to the Thommspon family in Washington, DC in 1997. Unfortunately, one baby was stillborn.

Twins certainly do run in our families.

To date the current count is 13-15 sets. Do you know all of the twins? Do you know how many sets are identical and how many are fraternal? Do you know their parents? The Sydnor family is out in the lead with twelve or more sets of twins. The McLaurin's site three (3) sets. One set of twins is shared between the two families. Do you know the shared set? Of course this data may not be totally accurate. If you know of other sets, please let us know.

Wow!, that is a lot of twins. What is the probability that families could have so many sets of twins? If you wish to know the answer to this question and more, click here.

Would you believe there is a set of triplets also.

Indeed there is. Benjamin, Nia, and George, are the lively trips of Gina Day Stevenson and her husband Michael.

Nice to have you aboard the family of twins.
