Michael X on the roof of Black House in Holloway Road, London on February 4, 1970 

London-based activist Michael X, reached out to John and Yoko after they made headlines for paying fines incurred by anti-apartheid activists who interrupted a rugby match between Scotland and South Africa. Inspired by the gesture, Michael asked John and Yoko to support the Black House, a home for disadvantaged youth in London. Having recently cut off their hair, they offered to exchange it for a pair of Muhammad Ali’s boxing shorts The hair was intended to be auctioned off to support the Black House and the shorts being sold to raise money for John and Yoko’s peace campaign. 

John and Yoko’s donation didn’t seem to have much impact. The Beatles Bible notes that there was never any proof that they put their own proceeds toward the peace campaign, and the Black House closed before the end of 1970, later burning down “in mysterious circumstances.”

Michael X, was later arrested for extortion following the Black House’s destruction (John Lennon paid his bail) and ultimately fleeing to his native Trinidad, where he started a commune that also burned in 1972. Investigators discovered corpses buried in shallow graves on the site, and he was hanged in 1975.
