The 49th Anniversary of Malcolm X's Assassination- Poet Louis Reyes Rivera




February 21st will mark the 49th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X.  Last week I attended an event hosted at the Belmont Mansion in Philly where Malcolm’s daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, shared her experience of growing up as one of Malcolm X’s daughters. It was kind of eerie to be that close to a piece of that history.

You must listen to the late poet Louis Reyes Rivera as he delivers his poem Bullet Cry  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElAqJK44rJs
