Today is the last Black History Month & Cool Shirt Friday post for February. If you haven’t done so already, please be sure to check out my previous posts celebrating: George Washington Carver, Harriet Tubman, and Rosa Parks.
Today’s post is in tribute to Malcolm X:
Often seen as polarizing and controversial, Malcolm X brought awareness and discussion of the issues faced by black, impoverished, and marginalized communities to the forefront. For a brief summary of his life, accomplishments, and his assassination (almost 52 years from the day of this post) you can read the history.com article here.
Please continue learning and educating yourself daily. I think Malcolm X said it best with a quote I’ll leave you with:
“Without education, you’re not going anywhere in this world.” — Malcolm X
