All of Harlem was celebrating the birthday today of Malcolm X — who was born on May 19th way back in 1925.
The African-American/Grenadian/Scottish advocate for Black folk would have been 84 today if he’d not been shot down by the forces against progress in 1965.
Considering we live on the Boulevard named in his honor, we clearly salute Malcolm and hope that his messages — both good and bad — continue to encourage dialogue, introspection, reflection and self-examination among the communities he sought to impact.
PS — It’s also the birthday of Transracial’s beloved bud NS. Mazal to you my dear dear amigo. Life is just a sunnier place with you in it.
