    Listening just a few seconds ago of an old interview with Betty Shabbazz,
    on the Wake Up Call, show on WBAI, did not hear the exact date but it sounds like the early 70s;

    "Malcolm was offered, 6 million dolllars, at a time when we where, economicaly not doing that well, and he was offered that money not to stop his movenet, but to slow it down,

    and he refused it......

    Look at the (Black) leaders today, wealth.. power,
    and if "they" threatened to take that wealth away,
    they would sell their mother down the river,
    maybe even you too!"

    I remember hearing Dr. Clark in "A Great and Mighty Walk" say that "malcolm" was offered $5 million dollars to start his own movement of Orthodox Islam and he turned it down. Dr. Clark then said "malcolm" turned to him and patted him on the back and said:

    "swine eater, (his nickname for Dr. Clark) let me buy you a cup of coffee"

    I've never heard anything about El-Hajj being offered 6 million to slow down his movement.

    How do you slow down a movement anyway? I think Queen Shabazz was more or less saying the same thing Dr. Clark said, but i will try to ck the archives @ BAI to hear/read it for myself!

    Thanks, because thats of interest to me, i have never heard that, and i've read many of sister shabazz's books, and her daughter, and of course brother malcolm, but they never mentioned this fact........:10500:, i do know malcolm had to be offered some bribes, due to the massive work and attacks on the system, they were scared the death,lol........and the weak and wicked would resort to either lies,violence or deceit, of which whites have done throughout their history.

    So i believe they did try and bribe him, they got mlk, but never malcolm.

    She said alot more too, and it was a voice of power and young discernment, that was enriching to hear, I wish I still had the old audio tapes to tape it.
    it was at the last few minutes of the 7AM WBAI

    In the book,Seventh Child by Rodnell Collins,Malcolm.s nephew...Rodnell said Malcolm was offered money along with other 'brothers' from the nation...Malcolm refused but others in the nation he believed took the money...and Malcolm became orthodox muslim after his trip to Mecca...Malcolm was a true muslim...also the book Seventh Child is my favorite book on Malcolm...it shows how much his sister Ella,[Rodnell's mother] was a large part of his life...along with more info on his family and other details other books lack.
