  1. Great article! Remember seeing an article on the “urban renewal” impact on the black community in west Lansing but can’t remember where now (something I read when I worked with you guys). Pass my congrats for getting published onto Bob.

    Was there any relation between James Little & Earl Little (Malcolm X’s father)?

  2. Scott-

    Nice to hear from you. I hope you’re doing well.

    Thanks for the kind words on the article. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    There was no relation between James Little and Earl Little. Perhaps I should have clarified that.

    -Bob
