All That We Love Deeply Becomes A Part of Us; Celebrating Malcolm X





















Today is the 45th anniversary of Malcolm X’s death; his assassination. I love this photo of him and his daughters with Muhammad Ali. I so identify with his girls and their lost of a great father. Here, also, is a painting of one of Malcolm's adult daughters next to him. (*Painting by Khaz Ra'el.)

Listen to the eulogy for Malcolm X as it was delivered by Ossie Davis. It is AWESOME ! Listen, too, to Sam Cooke’s A Change is Gonna Come. This weekend, Comcast has been showing Spike Lee’s movie Malcolm X, which is a must see.

thanks for the tip about O. Davis.

I used to show Malcolm X in class... problem is its length. Took more than a full week!
