Malcolm X in the 21st Century 

Many have wondered out loud, “What would El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) be doing at 92 years of age?” Our Black Shining Prince was born on May 19th, 1925 and joined the ancestors on February 21, 1925.

The following is one of the last public presentations by Huey on December 28, 1986 at the Oakland Uhuru House. This speech was published in “The Last Speeches of Huey P. Newton.” We have re-published his speech here in honor of one of our greatest African martyrs.
