Malcolm X—Message to the Grass Roots
 MALCOLMITES OBSERVE 50TH ANNIVERSARY
OF ‘MESSAGE TO THE GRASSROOTS’!
On Sunday, November 10th, the Malcolm X Commemoration Committee will host a people’s symposium to observe the 50th anniversary of the most seminal revolutionary speech of the 20th century, ‘The Message To The Grassroots,’ by Malcolm X!
          This special gathering will take at CEMOTAP, 135-05 Rockaway Blvd, Ozone Pk Queens at 3pm.
          Donation requested.
Among the participants will be Professor James Small who maintained the annual pilgrimage to the gravesite of Malcolm X for 42 years and Professor William Sales, who authored the vastly underappreciated ‘From Civil Rights To Black Liberation, Malcolm X and the Organization of AfroAmerican Unity’, among others!
“I defy anyone to cite a speech that has the conscious resonance between the generations like the awesome eyeopening, timemarking ‘Message To The Grassroots,’” said Zayid Muhammad, MXCC’s press officer.
Malcolm X delivered the classic speech on November 10, 1963 at King Solomon Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan in a gathering organized by the Northern Negro Grassroots Leadership Conference.
The event will also include statements from Black political prisoners on the impact that Malcolm’s speech had on their personal commitments and on their own organizing efforts!
“We simply could not let a milestone like this go by and not recognize it for its enormous importance,” said Dequi Kioni-Sadiki, the fiery chairwoman of the organization.
