50. Interesting.

 

Brown grew up in the ghetto of North Philadelphia, with a single, working mother and an absent father. Despite desperate poverty Brown’s mother worked to provide for Elaine’s private schooling, music lessons, and nice clothing...

Upon arriving in California... she met Jay Kennedy, a married white fiction writer, and the two became lovers.... Jay Richard Kennedy (aka Jay Richard Solomonick)... was, she says, a white man who 'taught her how to appreciate her blackness' and that his love caused her to join 'The Movement'...Kennedy was in fact then CIA U.S. Domestic Security Branch Informant A.


Jay Richard Kennedy was the agency's KEY informant within Rev. Martin Luther King's inner circle. Historically, Jay Richard Kennedy was in fact from 1939-1942 an agent of the US Bureau of Narcotics assigned to Latin America. During WWII, Kennedy became an agent of the OSS. He later was in short order, manager for both Frank Sinatra and Harry Belafonte (who summarily fired him), a part owner of the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas, full owner of a prominent Wall Street brokerage that bore his name, a sitting member of the New York Stock Exchange, owner of an electronics firm in Canada specializing in radio proximity artillery fuses for the US military in Vietnam, and from the late 1960s, concurrently, head of the American Psychological Association.

Civil Rights historians have long questioned why amongst all 'prominent' Black Panther Party leaders, only Brown has no FOIA file of any length, whilst files of other Panther leaders were frequently as long as twenty thousand pages. This is especially glaring as Brown was the Chairman of the Party for several years. Additionally, Brown was demonstrably the ONLY Panther national leader never to have been extensively incarcerated or exiled.
