      Joseph Laroche, nephew to the then president of Haiti, was a 2nd class passenger on Titanic (they could afford 1st class but being an interracial couple they were only allowed in 2nd or 3rd class) and was the only black man to perish in Titanic's sinking. He was survived by his pregnant wife (a son to be named Joseph Laroche Jr.) and two children. The interracial family was moving to Haiti for work, as the color of his skin made it difficult to find work in France.

      Joseph Laroche & Juliette Lafargue, interracial couple aboard the Titanic. As the ship sank, Joseph gave pregnant wife his coat stuffed w money & jewelry, put her & children into a lifeboat. “God be with you. I’ll see you in New York.” But Joseph died in the sinking, only victim of African descent.
