In December 1964 Fannie Lou Hamer visited New York City. On December 20, 1964, Malcolm X had the occasion​ to speak of Fannie Lou Hamer and the physical abuse she and other Mississippians faced simply trying to get the most basic civil rights promised by the US Constitution. So as I conclude my salute to the memory of Malcolm X today I say to his powerful spirit rest in peace our journey to human equality is still being traveled but the fight continues.
