Malcolm X - Photographic Poster

Malcolm X was a American Black Nationalist leader in the 1950s and '60s.

He was born in Nebraska on May 19, 1925 and in 1952 was when he abandoned his surname "Little," which he considered a relic of slavery, acquiring the surname "X" as an acknowledgement to the unknown name of his African ancestors.

Passionate, eloquent, he was a naturally gifted and inspirational spokesman. Malcolm X encouraged blacks to throw away the chains of racism "by any means necessary," including violence. The forceful civil rights leader broke away from the group shortly before his assassination in February 21, 1965, at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, where he had been preparing to deliver a speech.

"If we don't stand for something, we may fall for anything".

"How can you thank a man for giving you what's already yours? How then can you thank him for giving you only part of what is yours?"

"You're not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or who says it."

"You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom."
