    Malcolm X From Mecca to Ferguson

    in Politics

    FIFTY years ago today my father, Malcolm X, was assassinated while speaking at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City. I think about him every day, but even more in the last year, with the renewed spirit of civil rights activism after the tragic events in Ferguson, Mo., on Staten Island and in countless other parts of the country. What would he have to say about it?He would also critique the activists’ rhetoric itself. I imagine he would applaud the “Hands Up” gesture for its sheer dramatic effect, but also critique it as rank capitulation that ironically accommodates the very goal of police brutality — to intimidate and immobilize black citizens, forcing them into a defenseless posture if they hope to survive.

    The King Me Show: The Life of Malcolm X

    in Radio

    Why was this brutha murdered? What did he witness when he went to Eygpt and Mecca? Did this brutha find out the truth behind his leader, if so how did it effect him? 


    In the evening of February 21, 1965, at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, where Malcolm X was about to deliver a speech, three gunmen rushed the stage and shot him 15 times at point blank range. Malcolm X was pronounced dead on arrival at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital shortly thereafter. He was 39 years old. The three men convicted of the assassination of Malcolm X were all members of the Nation of Islam: Talmadge Hayer, Norman 3X Butler and Thomas 15X Johnson.


    In the immediate aftermath of Malcolm X's death, commentators largely ignored his recent spiritual and political transformation and criticized him as a violent rabble-rouser. However, Malcolm X's legacy as a civil rights hero was cemented by the posthumous publication in 1965 of The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley. At once a harrowing chronicle of American racism, an unsparing self-criticism and an inspiring spiritual journey, the book, transcribed by the acclaimed author of Roots, instantly recast Malcolm X as one of the great political and spiritual leaders of modern times. Named byTIME magazine one of 10 "required reading" non-fiction books of all-time,The Autobiography of Malcolm X has truly enshrined Malcolm X as a hero to subsequent generations of radicals and activists.


    Perhaps Malcolm X's greatest contribution to society was underscoring the value of a truly free populace by demonstrating the great lengths to which human beings will go to secure their freedom. "Power in defense of freedom is greater than power in behalf of tyranny and oppression," he stated. "Because power, real power, comes from our conviction which produces action, uncompromising action."

    50 years since the asasination of Malcolm X does his words still have relevance?


     


    His funeral was held on February 27, 1965 at Faith Temple Church of God in New York City. "All of us sitting here tonight, men and women, black and white, can stand a little taller because a man like Malcolm X walked on our earth, lived in our midst, smiled his smile on the face of Harlem," said Ossie Davis, an actor, director, writer and social activist, in a speech delivered at the funeral


     


    "You are not suppose to be so blind with Patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong no matter who says it."

    Critical Discourse: Omawale El-Hajj Malik Shabazz (Malcolm X)

    in History

    As Saturday, February 21st. will mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Brother/Minister/Revolutionary Malcolm X.


    Yet given his magnanamous impact, it was as if this was only yesterday.


    A rough and horror-filled childhood and aimless, early adulthood, set into motion his pathway to becoming a most excellent helper of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and the NOI.


    But, it was the challenges that came with such a responsibilty and in many ways, a manifestation of what we as black people in America have become after slavery, that caused the bitter and unfortunate separation from the NOI.


    But being the man he was, molded in the finest steel and timbre, Malcolm remained committed to the struggle for Freedom, Justice and Equality, here in the DIaspora and abroad, in his desire to unify the Inigenous African with the African-American.


    On Critical Discourse, we will examine his life and legacy, never overlooking his devotion to Al-Islam añd his global, de-colonized mind, which even today, far outshadows the host of present-day charlatans, passing as leaders, commissioned to lead our people into the  morass of spiritual, moral and intellectual bondage.


    For what we learn about the life and death of Omawale Malik Shabazz, helps us to appreciate our own past, present and future.

    Are You Smarter Than Your Pastor: Ode to Black History Malcolm X

    in Religion

    Jer 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.


    In these difficult days and times we often look to spiritual leaders for guidance and instruction in our lives. As Christians (followers of Christ) should these leaders speak from their mind, or from what is written based on the word of God? This show will examine things said by men and woman claiming to be Gods ministers to reveal whether or not they are speaking Gods word and doing his will. 1Pet 4: 11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through JesusChrist, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.We hope you tune in and listen to our show. 


    We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Mon 8:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Thur 8:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am.  All times are Eastern Standard Time.
