Remembering Malcolm X: May 19, 1925 – February 21, 1965

Today marks 46 years since human rights activist and icon Malcolm X was assassinated. The date also falls during North America’s Black History Month (February), but Malcolm X’s cultural relevance goes beyond just those of the African diaspora. I implore you to take a minute out of the day to reflect on the social and political parallels (including the accomplishments and failings) between today and Malcolm X’s generation.

“There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.”

RIP Malcolm X
