I teach in the public school system here in Memphis; we were reading My Bondage and My Freedom by Frederick Douglass last week and, as is my wont, I started talking about Malcom X only to discover I have one of his relatives in my class. Surprised, I asked if she might be related to Booker Little as Little was Malcolm's dead name She contacted her relatives and then reported that Booker and Malcolm unbeknownst to either during their lifetimes were related. Her relatives wanted to make it clear that Blooker Little did not die from drug use-I assured her that this is common knowledge. I found this fascinating and now, forum denizens, you are getting this tidbit of possibly interesting information hot off the presses.
