One of the most amazing things about working at the National Voting Rights Museum in Selma was meeting random, interesting people. Folks would often just wonder into the museum and have fascinating information or artifacts from the Movement. #MalcolmXDay
One of the greatest example was this man who came in and told us that he was in Selma reporting on the Movement when Malcolm X came to speak. For those who don’t know the story there was a bit of happenstance that led to that visit. Bro. Malcolm wasn’t originally scheduled.
He was in Alabama to speak at Tuskegee Univ and SNCC organizers heard he was there and pleaded with him to bring his message to Selma where the Voting Rights struggle had heated all the way up - that is both the organizing AND the police terrorism.

Think of all the talent our communities have lost? All the families disconnected? All the power shackled? All the genius undiscovered?

It was his words that helped pricked my young consciousness to the truth: the theft did not end with slavery. #MalcolmXDay #WhatMalcolmMeans
There are so many imprints he left on my life, through his words and his work, that continue to manifest and reap a harvest of learning and purpose for me.
