Faith Temple Church of God

AS I CONTINUE TO ILLUMINATE THE ISSUE OF ILLITERACY AND SHINE THE BRIGHTEST LIGHT ON LITERACY AND THE NEED FOR EVERY BLACK AMERICAN TO BE A STRATEGIC READER. I HOPE YOU ENJOY HEARING ME SPEAK OSSIE DAVIS'S MOST ELOQUENT WORDS MEMORIALIZING OUR VERY OWN DEFIANT LEADER FOR CIVIL, JUDICIAL, ECONOMIC RIGHTS MALCOLM X. MALCOLM UNDERSTOOD THE POWER THE WRITTEN AND SPOKEN WORDS. SO THIS MORNING I HONOR MALCOLM X'S PASSION FOR LITERACY. FOR HIS PEOPLE.
