Malcolm X was a civil rights activist and Islamic Preacher who was a spokesman for the Nation of Islam. He was the epitome of Black Power and fought against integration with the goal to improve the lives of African Americans. He was a strong believer in African Americans being able to have their own identity and showcase it in a positive and historical light. Unfortunately, Malcolm was gun-downed by three men taking 15 shots during a speaking engagement held in Manhattan. Even though Malcolm is now dead and gone his memory lives on forever; his legacy will never be forgotten and his name will never be said in vain. Rest In Peace Malcolm X.
