Was J. Edgar Hoover really Black???

Genealogy Records May Indicate that J. Edgar Hoover Was African-American

Was founding FBI director J. Edgar Hoover an African-American man?

Nearly 40 years after the death of founding FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, research may reveal that the crime fighting bureau chief was actually African-American according to “The Washington Post.”

“My grandfather told me that this powerful man, Edgar, was his second cousin, and was passing for white,” says Millie McGhee, an African-American relative of Hoover’s. “If we talked about this, [Edgar] was so powerful he could have us all killed. I grew up terrified about all this.”

McGhee began to uncover facts about the possibility of Hoover’s Black ethnicity after she dug through altered court records, conducted oral interviews with both white and Black Hoovers and enlisted licensed genealogists who determined that Hoover was indeed a relative of hers.

The mystery of Hoover’s genealogy has become a topic of interest recently due to the the Clint Eastwood film “J. Edgar” released earlier this month. In the film, Eastwood makes no mention of Hoover’s race, much to the chagrin of his Black relatives such as McGhee.

“Since the movie has come out, so many people have asked me why my information about Hoover’s black roots was not included,” said McGhee who has authored two books on the topic, “Secrets Uncovered: J.Edgar Hoover-The Relative” and “Secrets Uncovered : J. Edgar Hoover Passing For White?”

Do you think McGhee’s research on J. Edgar Hoover’s genealogy should have been included in Eastwood’s film?

Jay Z stands with Kaepernick and turned down offer to perform at 2018 NFL Super Bowl. 

JAY-Z had an offer on the table, and the rapper/mogul has allegedly declined.Metro UK claims that the star had been offered to play halftime at the Super Bowl in February, but Jay decided against it.


According to ‘an insider’ for The Sun, “Lots of people have been saying Jay will perform with Justin Timberlake, but it is simply not the case. ‘He has enough songs to create an incredible performance but he really has no plans to do the half-time show.”

Jay’s superstar wife Beyonce has played the Super Bowl twice over the past five years–as the main halftime performance back in 2013 and alongside Coldplay and Bruno Mars in 2016.

At the 2017 Meadows Music & Arts Festival this past weekend, Jay gave a aparticularly well-received performance. One standout moment of the night was Jay performing “The Story of OJ.” He dedicated the song to embattled NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the late comedian Dick Gregory, who died in August.

“I want to dedicate this song to Colin Kaepernick tonight,” Hov said before performing the song. “I want to dedicate this [song] to Dick Gregory. I want to dedicate this song to anyone that was held back and you overcame.”
