Scouting report
For Boston Celtics guard Malcolm Brogdon, the arrival of MLK Day always brings back memories of another civil rights leader who knew Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: his grandfather, John Hurst Adams, who was a civil rights legend in his own right. “For me, my grandfather is my MLK,” Brogdon recently told Andscape. “That’s the person that really led the way for me, that showed me how to live a decent life, how to be a decent man, and how to impact millions of people.”
Brogdon said his grandfather’s passion for civil rights was actually sparked by the Ku Klux Klan during his childhood. “His grandfather was involved heavily with the church as well, and I guess the wrong people in the town didn’t like it,” Brogdon said. “So, the KKK came and burned crosses in their backyard. So, I remember him telling the story of how they woke up and the front yard was on fire because the KKK had just come. And I know that’s one of the stories that, as a child, really lit a fire for him… “My family, my grandparents have always been outspoken, my grandmother as well. She’s still here, and she tells stories of white folks in the town when they were growing up, and my mom and my sisters, were calling the house and threatening to kill them while my grandfather was away traveling.”
