May's Heroes and Sheroes


This month, we will be commemorating the birth of our historical leader, el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz. He was born Malcolm Little in Omaha, Nebraska on May 19, 1925. His father was an organizer in Marcus Garvey's movement. Malcolm became the national spokesman for the Nation of Islam by 1960. By 1964 he had built a mighty link between Africans throughout the world through his fiery, charismatic speeches of truth and his founding of the Organization of Afro-American Unity, OAU. He was assassinated February 21, 1965.
