Just for the record, almost a 10 % of your posts here include the word "black".

Ever wonder why they didn't go to his concerts, .....

Errr...that is not true, neither in the 50s or 70s tour concerts.
Black people attended his tour concerts.
Vegas is a different matter, because of the general public there in those times were white and there to gamble mainly. But not because of black people avoiding elvis.

Yes, that is true. She is no longer in the “Black Lives Mattered to Elvis” group for that reason.

Quite liked this personal note in my copy:


30 Pieces of Silver - Book Note001.jpg


Not seen any major errors yet.

The book was published in 2016, when the publicity that I've read seemed to suggest it was new.

The quality of the paper & the reproduction of the photos is first class.

The book is largely text, but there are many photos & an impressive attempt has been made to identify the people seen, the location & date of each one in the accompanying description.

That's not something we normally get !

[An early quibble - the photo used on page 46 is colourised]

As long as there are no reversed photos, we are on the right track.

Not all, but most of the Memphis Mafia were typical southern bigots who hid their racist feelings from Elvis because of how his feelings weren't the same. That's why they removed black people such as Magnolia Smith from the REAL Elvis story. That's called white supremacy. Something that Elvis did not support going by his actions against racism.

Props to Joyce Rochelle Vaughn for having the guts and bravery to expose their kids and deception.
