On the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, our favorite source for real news Democracy Now! takes a look back at the life and legacy of Malcolm X in the video below, which features highlights from his speeches “By Any Means Necessary” and “The Ballot or the Bullet.” Also featured are Herb Boyd, who co-edited “The Diary of Malcolm X: El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, 1964″ with Malcolm X’s daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz.
This weekend marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, one of the most influential political figures of the 20th century. He was shot dead as he spoke before a packed audience at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City on February 21, 1965. Malcolm X had just taken the stage when shots rang out riddling his body with bullets. He was 39 years old. Details of his assassination remain disputed to this day. We air highlights from his speeches, “By Any Means Necessary” and “The Ballot or the Bullet.” We also speak with journalist Herb Boyd, who along with Malcolm X’s daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, co-edited “The Diary of Malcolm X: El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, 1964.”

10 Artists of the Harlem Renaissance Who Used Their Work as a Weapon Against Racial Injustice in the US
Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Jacob Lawrence, James Weldon Johnson, Langston Hughes, Louis Armstrong, Zora Neale Hurston, Aaron Douglas, Paul Robeson.
He was perhaps the most famous African-American actor of the early 20th century, rising to prominence during the Harlem Renaissance. His father was a former enslaved man who instilled in his son a strong social awareness. Paul Robeson did not fail his father, becoming the prototypical “Renaissance Man” who thrived at acting, sports, writing and teaching — all with a slant toward empowering Black people in the face of so much racial disharmony.
