We commemorate the legacy of El Hajj Malik El Shabazz, also known as Malcolm X, on the day he was assassinated, February 21st, 1965.
Words cannot describe his revolutionary contributions to the struggle for liberation and self-determination.
Reasons we need Black History. MLK was a great, great man and his contributions were covered thoroughly all throughout school. A nice story to be told of a man who fought back unimaginable treatment from his very own country and he resisted non-violently. The problem with that is the black history they teach is much deeper than MLKs protest and Carver’s peanuts. Malcolm X, the original Black Panther party, and countless others who didnt abide by peaceful resistance rule. It angers me that the changes they made, the pride that they instilled, their overall contributions are only taught to a select few by word of mouth and research.
Just because BHM is over, doesn’t mean black history should be put on the shelves until next year. We are American history. Just like the white. Black and Chinese helped build America.
