An African-American author from Maryland claims that former President 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 the former president 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.”
