The African American Biography Series of 2013 brings to you tonight, May 23, 2013 the life of Mr. Malcolm X.  Malcolm X was born Malcolm Little in 1925.  He died prematurely at age 39.  He has been described as one of the greatest and most influential African Americans in history.  Yes he is.  He is credited with raising the self-esteem of Black Americans and reconnecting them with their African heritage.  He is largely responsible for the spread of Islam in the Black community in the United States.  Many African Americans, especially those who lived in cities in the Northern and Western United States, felt that Malcolm X articulated their complaints concerning inequality better than any mainstream civil rights movement did.  Malcolm X's eulogy was delivered by Ossie Davis in the Faith Temple Church of God on February 27, 1965.  During the eulogy, Ossie Davis described Malcolm X as our manhood, our living Black manhood.  Malcolm X"s desire was that black people" keep a United Front wherein our most valuable time and energy will not be wasted fighting each other".  You are listening to Blogtalkradio.  I'm Laura Gall and the name of my show is "You Talk Too Much".  My host name is mae510.  My show airs Thursday evenings 6:30pm-7pm eastern time.
