Black History Month Spotlight: Malcolm X

Malcolm X (born Malcolm Little; May 19, 1925 – February 21, 1965), was an African-American Muslim minister, public speaker, and human rights activist. To his admirers, he was a courageous advocate for the rights of African Americans, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans. His detractors accused him of preaching racism, black supremacy, antisemitism, and violence. But that was not the case! He has been described as one of the greatest and most influential African Americans in history
