American Black Prince, Malcom Shabazz postulated before being felled by the cowards :After leaving the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X announced his willingness to work with leaders of the civil rights movement, though he felt that it should change its focus to human rights. So long as the movement remained a fight for civil rights, its struggle would remain a domestic issue, but by framing the struggle as a fight for human rights, it would become an international issue, and the movement could bring its complaint before the United Nations. Malcolm X said the emerging nations of the world would add their support to the cause of African Americans.
It was Malcom informed by Al Islam who articulated an exclusive human struggle. I sincerely hope African American history remembrances are not translated into Martin Luther King history remembrances not withstanding Dr. Kings commendable contributions to American culture. Malcom, the Muslim is still regulated to the intellectual ghetto of American discourse dispite his equally commendable contribution.
