Born in New York of a French-African father and a West Indian mother, Peters graduated from the High School of Music and Art. There he studied violin and voice. Subsequently he left New York City College to tour the U.S. in a production of Porgy and Bess with Avon Long. There followed numerous featured roles on- and off-Broadway, in road and stock companies, nightclubs, TV and a long run in Chicago as the juvenile lead in Anna Lucasta. He finished his education at the University of Chicago and spent three seasons performing in one-nighters cross-country as the bass soloist with the DePaur Infantry Chorus. The role of Tough Sergeant Brown in the film Carmen Jones brought Mr. Peters to the attention of Sam Goldwyn, who personally chose him to play the evil Crown in his film of Porgy and Bess. In 1961 he was offered the title role in the off-Broadway production of King of the Dark Chamber, the classic play by Tagore, India's great playwright and poet. Mr. Peters has sung on numerous network variety shows, recorded albus, filled club engagements and guest starred on almost every major dramatic TV show in the U.S. In films he recently co-starred with George Peppard in P.J. and Lloyd Bridges in The Daring Game, and appeared in The Incident and in producer Monroe Sachson's powerful film drama The McMasters. In theatre, Peters has done Othello numerous times, notably, at Washington's Arena Stage. In 1970 he headed the national company of The Great White Hope.
