Happy Birthday, Malcolm X!

Malcolm X was born May 19, 1925. He'd be 82 years old if he'd not been assassinated in cold blood. This man was not only a great revolutionary but also a great mind. His life story inspired me when I read his autobiography in 1991- humble beginnings, getting caught up in negativity during his youth but then changing his life to lead and inspire hundreds of thousands of people before his untimely death. I suggest everyone to read his book The Autobiography of Malcolm X or watch the movie titled X. As always, the book was better but Spike Lee did a good job of proper representation in the movie as well.

Thank you, Malcolm. Your beliefs & teachings still live on to this very day.
Asa Lama Lakum, my brother.
