Black History Month

February is observed in the USA and Canada as the Black History month for remembrance of important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. There is no doubt that the children of African diaspora are today much better off compared to the fate that awaited their ancestors. Here in the USA today we have a president who is of mixed race whose father was a real, free, African from Kenya. This change at the highest level could not have happened without the sacrifice of too many people.

I strongly believe that Malcolm X was the most intelligent and wisest of all the 20th century Afro-American leaders. He understood the problem faced by his people better than anyone of his time, including Martin Luther King, Jr. Without his contribution and sacrifice the Black people here in the USA would not be where they are today.

Here below are some links to Malcolm X's interview and speeches, which are worth listening.
