On 21Feb1965 Black leader Malcolm X was assassinated in NYC……..
In New York City, Malcolm X, an African American nationalist and religious leader, is assassinated by rival Black Muslims while addressing his Organization of Afro-American Unity at the Audubon Ballroom in Washington Heights.
The question still remains……why was he killed?
Malcolm X (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, born Malcolm Little) was an influential and inspirational figure to the Afro-Americans in the United States. A powerful orator, excellent debater and willing to preach “The price of freedom is death,” led for his personality and teachings to be printed across the U.S. and the world.
There are three possible answers. Three—because each on its own isn’t satisfactory. Examining the motives behind the killing inevitably leads for more questions to be asked and before you know it, you’re in too deep.
Many people do not like Malcolm X because of his supposed hate for white people….some of that is warranted but after he returned from the Hajj his tone changed for the better to include all people…….
I offer a few videos for those interested…..
This video is a long piece but should be seen to understand the man and the movement he inspired……
This one is a short video that was made for children to acquaint them with the man…..
Malcolm X was more than the negativity that is always bought up when his name is mentioned…….he should be required for any history of America.
