In His Words, My Voice Malcolm X

Yesterday, I read an article that detailed that 3/4 of California young black males are failing the state's reading proficiency tests. This is simply deplorable as well as unacceptable. Today, I bring to my blog the words of Malcolm X who self-taught​ himself the literacy. He understood the power of words and spent his lifetime mastering the skill of reading and communication. Where is that defiant spirit in today's young black males. It must be recaptured and the want for knowledge rediscovered. Today, in his words, my voice, our ancestor Malcolm X from a Harlem, NY Rally in 1960.
