Malcolm X (Malcolm Little,19 May 1925 - 21February 1965) born 99 years ago to a Grenadian mother and an African American father, was raised in a household deeply influenced by the Garveyite movement. His transformative journey began during his time in prison, where he discovered the teachings of the Nation of Islam and was guided by the influential leader, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Following his conversion, Malcolm X embarked on a pilgrimage to Mecca, an experience that profoundly impacted his views on race and religion. Subsequently, he traveled to Africa, further solidifying his commitment to the global struggle for equality. Upon his return to the United States, he found the Organization of Afro-American Unity, advocating for black empowerment and unity before his tragic assassination in 1965.
