YOUNG CAR­RY­ING ON A FAM­ILY TRA­DI­TION

The Detroit News - - Metro -

Con­tro­versy has sur­rounded Cole­man Young II’s name for years. His mother, An­nivory Calvert, said his name was al­ways Cole­man Young II – and he was bap­tized with the name two months af­ter his birth in 1982. In 1985, the mother gave him the alias “Joel Loving” to pro­tect him from any­one who would want to harm him. Calvert said in 1995 a new birth cer­tifi­cate was is­sued for Cole­man Young II.
