Ethnicity and religion 

Chappelle is a multi-racial person, as his father is an African-American while his mother is Filipino. 

In terms of religion, his father is a Muslim, having converted to Islam in 1998, while his mother is a devout Christian. It is, however, unclear if Chappelle is an adherent of Islam like his father or a Christian like his mother.


Chappelle has not demonstrated the slightest interest in following in his father’s footsteps, even though his father is a hugely popular public figure.

He has chosen to focus on academics rather than on performing arts, in contrast to his older brother Sulayman Chappelle, who enjoys poetry, and his younger sister, Sanaa, who has received acting training.
