Curry Family Photo 

Stephen Curry is considered as the face of the 2017 NBA Champions Golden State Warriors yet there is one thing most people are not familiar with - his own roots. In a league dominated by African-American basketball players, some fans may think that he's "not black enough" (no race pun intended) but few have realized that Curry has a diverse racial past as he's obviously a product of America's diversity. As much as he identify himself as African-American, he has Caucasian ancestors as well.

In fact, most African-Americans have at least one Caucasian ancestor. The more racial mixing in the world today, the color line has become so blurred that identifying oneself with a particular group would be confusing already.

Curry's ancestors can be traced back to Virginia where his father Dell (born Wardell Stephen Curry, yes they have the same name) and mother Sonya (nee Adams) were born - Harrisonburg and Radford respectively. The Curry name can be traced back to Blanch Perline Curry while his maternal ancestors can be traced back to John Snell.
