We honor the birth of Malcolm X on May 19, 1925:


"The common goal of 22 million Afro-Americans is respect as human beings, the God-given right to be a human being. Our common goal is to obtain the human rights that America has been denying us. We can never get civil rights in America until our human rights are first restored. We will never be recognized as citizens until we are first recognized as humans."


Malcolm X, 1964
