The Murder of Malcom X and its impact on Black America

Feb. 21, 2007 marked 42 years since one of America's most charismatic,dynamic controversial, enigmatic, inspirational, feared, celebrated, hated, intelligent orators/leaders was cut down by a hail of bullets in his prime in front of a packed audience in the Audobon Ballroom which included his wife (pregnant with twins) and his four children....Although he drew his last breath that tragic day Malcolm still lives!!! You can kill the dreamer, but never the dream; you can kill the revolutionary, but never the revolution!!!

Malcolm was as great,complexed and committed as they come, who could not be brought with money (was once offered 3 million dollars to leave the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to start teaching a more "tradtionial" form of Islam, but he flat out refused)...Malcolm also had the underrated ability to admit when he was wrong and was willing to change in order to be a part of the solution, in order to confront and eradicate the problem...Malcom experienced the extremes of the human condition in his brief yet full 39 years on this piece of rock we call earth...Let us rejoice in what he left us instead of how he left us...We got alot of work to do so let's get to it!!! Hotep!!!
Your comrade in the struggle.
