The price of freedom is death

Anytime you beg another man to set you free, you’ll never be free! Freedom is something that you have to do for yourself … and until the American [Black man] lets [Caucasians] know that we are really ready and willing to pay the price that is necessary for freedom, our people will always be walking around here as second-class citizens, or what you call 20th-century slaves … the price of freedom is death!” said Malcolm X during a 1964 interview.

Friday, Feb. 21, 1965 marks the day a hit squad of cold-blooded assassins aired out the Audubon Ballroom stage, expiring the physical life of Black Nationalist advocate El Hajj Malik El Shabazz, aka Malcolm X, in full view of his pregnant wife, Betty, and four young daughters along with approximately 400 unsuspecting Organization of Afro-American Unity supporters.

Admirers contend that in the over five decades since that frigid Sunday afternoon, he has become a martyr whose life has been closely scrutinized as his legacy continues to influence the culture, economics, education, politics and socialization of Africans throughout the Diaspora.
