Today is the birthday of activist and leader Malcolm X – aka Detroit Red, and El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. Every year I will honor his memory today by re-reading the autobiography of Malcolm X by Alex Haley.
The photo above gives me inspiration to change and become a better person, similiar to Malcolm’s journey to find peace and freedom. This photograph would also make a great painting.
He was a leader who began a path, and we must do the rest.
