TAMPA, Fla.Nov. 18 is always a dark day on Olga Booker’s calendar.

“Nov. 18, 1978, they all committed suicide with the Kool-Aid lacing,” recalled Booker.

They, meaning the 900 followers of the People’s Temple, led by the smooth-talking cult leader Jim Jones. Among the dead men, women and young children were Booker’s ex-husband and several members of his family.

Jones had promised his followers paradise in the jungles of Guyana. At that time, Booker and her ex-husband were already divorced, and their two kids were living with their father in California under Jones’ spell.
