There is a tendency for all matters of social awareness to toe the "trending" line in this social media era, so I've been purposely posting this birthday tribute to Malcolm X late every year since I created the song, to keep it from getting swallowed up in the sea of temporary hype on May 19th. Speaking of hype, while I created this song/video a few years back, you’ll notice me doing an 🙅🏾‍♂️ at the end...it obviously wasn’t for Wakanda. Please watch the video on YouTube, subscribe, and read on...
—————————
We swell with pride every year during the celebration of the extraordinary black American, Martin Luther King Jr., but is he the only black American who merits a holiday? Malcolm X was a brave, politically minded advocate of self defense who showed uncommon strength holding firm to his principles, and great courage to reevaluate those principles when he uncovered a new perspective. We should celebrate his courage to be a truth seeker, his willingness to reconsider ideals, and the way he challenged himself to embark on a new journey; a journey itself that is worth celebrating. Happy Belated, Malcolm X...or rather, Happy #NeverBelated.

Malcolm X ➡️➡️➡️ Legend. Hero. Icon.
It would have been nice if Malcolm X was trending on social media as much as the "royal" wedding. I'm just saying, this is someone who actually did something for the people. ✊🏾✊🏽✊🏿 #malcolmx #malcolmlittle #civilrightsleader #royalwedding #meghanmarkle #waymoreimportant #trending #staywoke

Happy Birthday to a courageous and, at times, controversial leader in civil rights history. Whether you agree with his methods and teachings or not, Malcom X should be honored for the life’s work he committed himself to in order to help pull black people out of the submissive, second class mentality they had been forced to adopt for hundreds of years...a mentality forced on them in order to survive among white racist Americans. He is remembered for his contribution to restoring black pride, and for memorable quotes such as this one. @spring_terry is honored to share her birthday with this fearless leader, who paid the price of an early death for his ultimate freedom.

Richard Pryor on Addiction: Because this pipe used to tell me when to go to bed. The pipe would say, “Time to get up. Time for some smoke, Rich. We’re not doing anything today. Fuck all your appointments. Me and you are just gonna hang out in this room together.” I’d get mad and frustrated. People didn’t understand me. The pipe’d say “Come in the room with me. I got you covered. I know how you feel. Rich. Light me up. Hold me for a couple of days and we’ll talk it over.” I’m talking about a year later, jack. I’m talking about… I’m drawn up. Fucked up and out of my mind… but I’m not hooked. People are trying to help me. I say… “You’re just meddling in my motherfucking business!

African American #civilrightsleader

African American civil rights leader Malcolm X was a major twentieth-century s#pokesmanforblacknationalism. Unlike many other African American leaders of this time, who supported nonviolent methods, Malcolm X believed in using more aggressive measures in the #fightforcivil rights.

As a boy
Malcolm X was born #MalcolmLittle on May 19, 1925, in #OmahaNebraska. His father, a Baptist minister, was an outspoken follower of #ïMarcusGarvey (1887–1940), the black nationalistleader. (A nationalist is a person who promotes one nation's culture and interests over all others.) Garvey supported a "back-to-Africa" movement for African Americans. During Malcolm's early years, his family moved several times because of racism (dislike and poor treatment of people based on their race). They moved from Omaha, Nebraska, after being threatened by the Ku Klux Klan, a group that believes that white people are superior to all other races. While living in an all-white neighborhood in Michigan their house was burned. When Malcolm was six years old, his father was mysteriously murdered. The black community was convinced that white people had committed the crime. Three of Malcolm's four uncles were also murdered by white people.

By the 1930s the nation had fallen into the Great Depression, a decade-long period of great economic hardship. Work was scarce, and Malcolm's family struggled. For a time his mother and her eight children lived on public welfare. When his mother became mentally ill, Malcolm was sent to a foster home. His mother remained in a mental institution for about twenty-six years. The children were divided among several families, and Malcolm lived in various state institutions and boardinghouses. At thirteen Malcolm was charged with delinquency (behaving in a way that is against the law) and was sent to a juvenile detention home (a place where young people are held in custody). He dropped out of school at the age of fiftee

Where’s the special emoji for #MalcolmXDay? Oh, wait, there is no Malcolm X Day 😒.
Here you go, brother...

Happy Birthday, Brother Malcolm.
More to come, so please check back for messages and music about #X and be ready to share. Because his life and message was one of the most significant in American history, or maybe even history period. And his birth deserves more than one day of muted acknowledgment.

"I can state in all sincerity that I wish nothing but freedom, justice, and equality, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all people...Ignorance of each other is what has made unity impossible in the past. Therefore we need enlightenment. We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity." #hbd #MalcolmX #AlHajjMalikElShabazz #BrotherMalcolm #BettyShabazz #MuhammadAli #MartinLutherKing #CivilRights #CivilRightsActivist #CivilRightsLeader #CivilRightsMovement #HumanRights #Equality #Justice #Freedom #Enlightenment #Love #Patience #Unity

In our second collaboration with photographer Ashleigh Coleman, we went searching for Emmett Till on a Mississippi Delta pilgrimage. Along the way we discovered the gravesite of Civil Rights leader Rev. George Lee, toured Greenwood’s Baptist Town, visited locations from the motion picture “The Help,” unearthed legendary bluesman Robert Johnson, slept in sharecropper shacks, and ultimately uncovered traces of the teen martyr whose death gave birth to the modern Civil Rights Movement.

There is no better way to authentically experience historical homelife in the Mississippi Delta than with a stay at Tallahatchie Flats.

“The Flats,” as locals call it, is a collection of six “sharecropper shacks” situated on the banks of the Tallahatchie River and bordered by cotton fields as far as the eye can see. When driving Money Road from Robert Johnson’s gravesite to Bryant’s Grocery, you will pass Tallahatchie Flats on the left.

All of the tenant houses were rescued from area plantations, and each house has a name and story of its own.

Although the houses retain their rustic character inside and out, each house has been retrofitted with indoor plumbing, heat, air conditioning, and a fully functional kitchen with a stove, refrigerator, and microwave.

In our second collaboration with photographer Ashleigh Coleman, we went searching for Emmett Till on a Mississippi Delta pilgrimage and uncovered traces of the teen martyr whose death gave birth to the modern Civil Rights Movement.

The Tallahatchie County Courthouse in Sumner, Mississippi, is where Roy Bryant and J. W. Milam were tried for the murder of Emmett Till.

In 2014, the second floor courtroom underwent an extensive award-winning restoration. With a mission to preserve the space as a key site on the Till and greater civil rights landscape, the Tallahatchie County Board of Supervisors and the Emmett Till Memorial Commisssion (ETMC) created a living artifact by returning the courtroom to its 1955 appearance. Although architecturally accurate, the pristine climate-controlled courtroom we toured is a far cry from the hot, humid, and smoke-filled environment during the trial.

The most courageous witness for the prosecution was Emmett’s great uncle Mose Wright. In fact, it may have been the first time a black man ever accused a white man of a crime in a Southern courtroom and lived. When asked to identify the men that had abducted his great-nephew, Wright stood, pointed to Milam and said, “There he is.” Then he also identified Bryant.

After the trial, Wright fled to Chicago, leaving most of his possessions behind, including a 1941 Ford and cotton in the fields. It took the all-male, all-white jury about an hour of deliberation to return a not guilty verdict, a tradition that would continue into the 1960s at other such civil rights trials across the South.

Martin Luther King Jr. // "An individual has not begun to live until he can rise above the narrow horizons of his particular individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. And this is one of the big problems of life, that so many people never quite get to the point of rising above self....so they end up the tragic victims of self-centeredness. They are the people who live an eternal 'I' ... They start out, the minute you talk with them, talking about what they can do, what they have done...where they have been...who they know....and how much money they have. Now, we can say to a certain extent that persons in this situation are persons who have really never grown up... For you see, a child is inevitably, necessarily egocentric. He is a bundle of his own sensations, clamoring to be cared for... When people become mature, they are to rise above this. When one matures...he turns himself to higher loyalties. He gives himself to something outside of himself. He gives himself to causes that he lives for and sometimes will even die for. He comes to the point that now he can rise above his individualistic concerns. And so you see people who are apparently selfish; it isn’t merely an ethical issue but it is a psychological issue. They are the victims of arrested development, and they are still children. They haven’t grown up." #martinlutherking #civilrightsactivist #civilrightsleader #legend #individualism #ego #egocentric #selfish #selfcentered #people #children #maturity #quotes #quotestoliveby #quotesforlife #humanity

The Tallahatchie County Courthouse in Sumner, Mississippi, is where Roy Bryant and J. W. Milam were tried for the murder of Emmett Till.

On September 19, 1955, more than one hundred journalists flocked to town. Their dispatches from the trial made daily headlines in newspapers across the nation, and major television networks flew film nightly to New York from a temporary airfield in nearby Tutwiler. Black reporters, segregated from their white colleagues, were seated at a separate table in the spectator section.

The trial would last five days, and the all-male, all-white jury would deliberate about an hour before rendering their verdict.

The Black Bayou Bridge on the outskirts of Glendora is believed to be the location where J. W. Milam and Roy Bryant dumped 14-year old Emmett Till’s body. They had abducted, tortured, mutilated, and shot him before attaching a 75 pound cotton gin fan to his neck with barbed wire.

We parked at a safe distance to explore the abandoned 1916 steel and concrete structure on foot.
