“Without education, you’re not going anywhere in this world,” Malcolm X once said.
Tuesday, grassroots activists from throughout the tristate area will commemorate the remarkable legacy of one of Harlem’s greatest advocates for Black people to be a self-determining community. A number of local events have been scheduled for May 19 to acknowledge the 90th anniversary of Malcolm X’s physical birth and 50th annual cycle of an exclusive cultural ceremony commemorating his legacy.
Beginning Tuesday morning, Malcolm X’s Organization of Afro American Unity will sponsor the annual pilgrimage to where his and his wife Betty’s bodies are interred, Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, N.Y.
