Today marks 46 years since the revolutionary El-Hajj Malik Shabazz, better known as Malcolm X was assassinated. The Autobiography of Malcolm X has been my favorite book since I was a child and I find myself re-reading it every couple of years, each time becoming more inspired then the last. Unfortunately, not much about Malcolm is taught in schools so I urge you to do research on your own if in any way you are not clear on his legacy. #Knowyourhistory.
