We have reach the 50th anniversary of brother Malcolm X death. So in this broadcast we want to highlight some info surrounding his life and assassination.
Born on May 19, 1925, in Omaha, Nebraska, Malcolm X was a prominent black nationalist leader who served as a spokesman for the Nation of Islam during the 1950s and '60s. Due largely to his efforts, the Nation of Islam grew from a mere 400 members at the time he was released from prison in 1952 to 40,000 members by 1960. Articulate, passionate and a naturally gifted and inspirational orator, Malcolm X exhorted blacks to cast off the shackles of racism "by any means necessary,". Brother Malcolm X broke with the group shortly before his assassination, February 21, 1965, at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, where he had been preparing to deliver a speech.
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.

Good morning and welcome to the Seriouside of the jrilshow. We will be discussing the following topics:
SAME SEX MARRIAGE: The Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the banning of Same Sex Marriage is unconstituational.
BLACK CHURCHES BURNED: In wake of the shootings in Charleston, South Carolina, Black Churches are being burned in the south.
MALCOLM X: With the shooting of unarmed black men, the killing of the Charleston Nine,many African Americans are tired of the saying "turn the other cheek". Some are yearning for the days of Malcolm X"By Any Means Necessary".
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."
In honor of Malcolm X 90th birthday May 19th, we have been celebrating a man who helped pave the way for black people to create their own source of media. Had it not been for him helping to found Muhammad Speaks back in the 1960’s The Dymonds Radio Show would not exist. These black blogs would not exist. These black news outlets would not exist. We as Black people would NOT have our own media outlet PERIOD.
So lets not forgot how at one point and time we didn’t have the ability to voice our opinion on a national scale, now we do and majority of yall are NOT even taking taking advantage of this,
Tonight, we will continue to talk about the great man that Malcolm X was and we dedicate this show to him and Mike Brown (The unarmed young man who was shot in Ferguson by Darran Wilson) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MALCOLM X (May 19th) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE BROWN (May 20th)
QUOTE OF THE NIGHT:
“Those of you who have gone to all these colleges and studied all kinds of journalism, yellow and black journalism, all you have to do is contribute some of your journalistic talent to our newspaper department along with our research department, and we can turn out a newspaper that will feed our people with so much information that we can bring about a real live revolution right here before you know it.” - From Malcolm X (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) speech in 1964 at the Founding Rally of the Organization of Afro-American Unity
