An African-American author from Maryland claims that former Director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover, was a Black man who was passing for white.
Millie McGhee, author of “Secrets Uncovered : J. Edgar Hoover Passing For White,” says that Hoover was related to her.
My grandfather told me that this powerful man, Edgar, was his second cousin, and was passing for white. If we talked about this, he was so powerful he could have us all killed. I grew up terrified about all this.”
