In 1981, in an intimate talk with Tony Brown from his prison cell, Talmadge Hayer explains what his and his co-conspirators’ motivations were and what happened the day Malcolm X was killed on February 21, 1965 at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem, New York.
TBJ # 503 – Malcolm (Denzel Washington) and Elijah: Decades before Hollywood discovered this Academy Award winner, his 1982 performance on Tony Brown’s Journal as Malcolm X (the physical resemblance is stunning) marked the striving-actor young Denzel Washington’s place in history. It was his first performance before a national audience, thanks to stage producer Woodie King, Jr. The New York Off-Broadway play produced by King revolves around the conflict between Elijah Muhammad, leader of the Nation of Islam, and his verbal whip, Malcolm X.
TBJ # 631 – Mrs. Norman, We Love You: Garnet High School in Charleston, WV was Tony Brown’s high school. It was one of the most academically rigorous high schools in the nation and, as a result, in 1951 his freshman entrance exam to Wayne State University in Detroit was waived because of Garnet’s outstanding academic record. The fact that Garnet was all-Black by laws that ironically resulted in an all-Black faculty that possessed advanced college degrees from a variety of prestigious universities that included The Sorbonne in Paris and many of the most distinguished Black colleges in the U. S. On this edition, his English teacher, Ruth S. Norman, and the all-Black school’s standard of academic excellence and character building are profiled. Garnet High School was named after Henry Highland Garnett, a militant former slave from the Mandingo tribe in Africa and later Jamaica.
TBJ # 601 – When The Sisters Came Marching Home: After this profile on the 6888 Black WAC unit was aired, Tony Brown appealed to the Reagan White House to honor the WWII Black WAC unit: “This superb group of women was the only Black WAC unit to serve overseas during WWII. They were cited for doing a job that no one else had succeeded in doing. The 6888th also holds the dubious distinction of being the only all-female unit to serve overseas which did not receive a citation.
