Sambo is a racial term for a person with mixed indigenous and African heritage in the Caribbean, also for an African American, Black, or sometimes a South Asian person in the United States. Several origins of the term itself have been proposed, but it gained notoriety through the children's book The Story of Little Black Sambo by Helen Bannerman, in 1898. It was the story of a boy named Sambo who outwitted a group of hungry tigers.
