    Malcolm X's birthday is coming May 19.

    In this thread we'll create a tribute by posting videos, interviews, speech analysis, links, or anything else paying homage to our ancestor warrior-scholar.

    Big respect Due!!!!



    I have nothing to offer but my love of brother malcom when i read his auto biography at 17. which i think all black men should do. It changed my life. Hearing him speak allways gets me worked up.The imagery in the movie was awesome as well. THe Power(energy of one man) can cause mighty vibrations on the earth. How long will they kill our profits while we stand around and look!!!(BOb Marley) :dance: Big ups to brother malcom i give this dance to the vibrations and the visual memory you created in my image nation.

    all of my posts n this thread will b direct quotes from Malcolm, or, f they r not from him - the author will b indicated.

    "when a person places the proper value on freedom, there is nothing under the sun that he will not do to acquire that freedom. whenever u hear a man saying he wants freedom, but n the next breath he is going to tell you what he won't do to get it, or what he doesn't believe n doing n order to get it, he doesn't believe n freedom. a man who believes n freedom will do anything under the sun 2 acquire . . . or preserve his freedom." :flamet:

Speech, Dec. 12 1964, New York City
