It's Malcolm X's birthday
« on: May 19, 2010, 06:05:05 pm »
...I have been on a gazillion sites and the only one that remembered it no matter how much they say they love Malcolm was a feminist one which is not predominately of color.

Dang!  I had stuff to post on that day all lined up but I was on the road. 

In my home town, Malcolm X Day was a school holiday, along with MLK.

Ask my daughter did they talk about Malcom in school today, she no, why were suppose too? Approched the next question with fear. Do you know who he is? " Yea he fought for civil rights". It's YES and write me 300 word report on Malcom X.

To commemorate, Spike Lee's Malcolm X will be playing on BET tonight.

I've noticed in the local papers that it is the highest rated movie ever played on BET...  a whopping 4 stars compared to the usual 1-2 star rated movies that play on that network.

Malcolm X's daughter found dead in Brooklyn
by Jonathan Dienst and Phil Helsel






Malikah Shabazz, one of six daughters of slain civil rights activist Malcolm X, was found dead Monday at her Brooklyn home, police said.

Shabazz, 56, was found unresponsive in her home in Midwood on Monday afternoon, and the death is not deemed suspicious, an NYPD spokesperson said.

Police responded shortly after 4:30 p.m., and emergency services were already at the scene.

Shabazz's daughter had called 911, police said.

Her death was reported earlier Monday by NBC New York.

The medical examiner told the station she was found unresponsive and was pronounced dead.

Malcolm X was slain in 1965.

Last week two men convicted of killing him were exonerated.

The convictions against Muhammad Aziz and Khalil Islam were thrown out Thursday.

They had always maintained their innocence.

Islam died in 2009.

Malikah Shabazz, one of twins, was born after their father was slain.

Their mother was pregnant with them when Malcolm X was fatally shot at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City, where hundreds had gathered to hear him speak, on February 21st, 1965.

Bernice King, daughter or Martin Luther King Jr., tweeted her condolences, saying she was deeply saddened.

"My heart goes out to her family, the descendants of Dr. Betty Shabazz and Malcolm X," she wrote in part.
