This Day in History:  1965 – Malcolm X, an African American nationalist and religious leader, is assassinated in New York City.


Fact of the Day:   In contrast with civil rights leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X advocated self-defense and the liberation of African Americans “by any means necessary.”  Malcolm X referred to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy as “chickens coming home to roost.”  The comment drew much ire from other civil rights leaders, who distanced themselves from Malcolm X.


Quote of the Day:


Did You Know?   The next time you sit in a folding chair, think of African American inventor Nathaniel Alexander, who patented the first folding chair in 1911.
