A Black History Icon not to be forgottenI am very appalled at how the Media has purposely glazed over the birthday of Malcolm X.I don't know when it happened, but it just seems like American History can only remember one man, Martin Luther King Jr. I want to say in advance that I am not a MLK hater at all. I truly respect what he did in his time for the African-American Civil Rights movement. However; what did Malcolm X Do? Why is he not even mentioned on his birthday, or even during the month of February? There were so many others that paved the way fo our race, and for the opportunity for President Barack Obama to be our 1st African-American President.An amazing Fighter for Justice

 What about Angela Davis, Sojourner Truth, and Harriet Tubman?

A Passion for Education

What about Booker T. Washington, Marcus Garvey, and Langston Hughes??

Black History is American History and the schools are not teaching the whole truth about our amazing history. Our heritage does not start in chains, our heritage starts at the beginning of all life.
So what happens if Brother Malcolm X does not even get a mention on his Birthday?
Malcolm X was born Malcolm Little on May 19, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska. His mother, Louis Norton Little, was a homemaker occupied with the family’s eight children. His father, Earl Little, was an outspoken Baptist minister and avid supporter of Black Nationalist leader Marcus Garvey. Earl’s civil rights activism prompted death threats from the white supremacist organization Black Legion, forcing the family to relocate twice before Malcolm’s fourth birthday. Regardless of the Little’s efforts to elude the Legion, in 1929 their Lansing, Michigan home was burned to the ground, and two years later Earl’s mutilated body was found lying across the town’s trolley tracks. Police ruled both accidents, but the Little’s were certain that members of the Black Legion were responsible. Louise had an emotional breakdown several years after the death of her husband and was committed to a mental institution. Her children were split up amongst various foster homes and orphanages.
