Is justice truly blind? { Malcolm x }

Bell 2a / Sarah York / 3/23/17

{S}: Malcolm X was a very influential man for many reasons. For example, in his autobiography he talks about how he changed his last name from Little to X because he rejected his given slave name. Malcolm used the attention given to him to direct the black Muslim community in America.
"If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything."
{Q}: "Malcolm X, the activist and outspoken public voice of the Black Muslim faith, challenged the mainstream civil rights movement and the nonviolent pursuit of integration championed by Martin Luther King Jr. He urged followers to defend themselves against white aggression “by any means necessary.”

"You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom."
{P}: The autobiography of Malcolm X (1965) is very true to who Malcolm was as a person. The book remains honest to who he was at the core. He was vigilant and understanding of the African american community. The book easily conveys his life at home, his time in prison, and his discovery of Islam. The underlying theme of this book is redemption.

"If you're not ready to die for it, put the word 'freedom' out of your vocabulary."
{Q}: "Malcolm X's assassination trial attracted the attention of the media, both black and white, from across the United States. For two months, friends, followers, and interested observers awaited the trial's conclusion to divulge the details of his murder. Most significantly, the question of who was actually behind the murder was left for considerable speculation. Many came to believe that the three men convicted in the murder could not have been more than pawns in a larger conspiracy. " On March 11, 1966, the jury, after 20 hours of deliberation, found all three men guilty of Malcolm X's murder. Since New York had no death penalty, each of them received an automatic life sentence, though parole was possible after they had served 27 years of their term. Butler, a model prisoner in the places where he was incarcerated, was paroled in June 1985; Johnson and Hayer won release shortly thereafter."
