👇🏾Here's the link to the public letter several of us are sending to @netflix & the producers & directors of #WhoKilledMalcolmX. You're welcome to sign in agreement with me, @JeanneTheoharis, @drashleyfarmer, Robin DG Kelley, @TheBarbaraSmith, @MHarrisPerry, @DrIbram & many others
@netflix @JeanneTheoharis @drashleyfarmer @TheBarbaraSmith @MHarrisPerry @DrIbram We are disappointed at the complete disregard of women activists & women scholars in the series. The producers went to great lengths to include the perspectives of many men, including those w/o expertise on Malcolm X and/or Black Power. Yet not a single woman scholar was featured
@netflix @JeanneTheoharis @drashleyfarmer @TheBarbaraSmith @MHarrisPerry @DrIbram The exclusion of women scholars is not only deeply problematic but presents a very skewed (& inaccurate) portrayal of history. This is especially disturbing considering the fact that women scholars have been at the forefront of producing scholarship on Civil Rights & Black Power.

.@Netflix produced an entire 6-part series on #MalcolmX without any #women scholars. We would like to let #WhoKilledMalcomX directors & producers @philbhere, @Rdretzin, @yoshaylaharris & @Nani_Ife know that #Womenalsoknowhistory. We exist and refuse to be ignored. @wkmxdocseries
Contrary to popular belief, there are many women scholars who are experts on the Civil Rights Movement, Black Power, and Black nationalism. Our database includes many. Here are just a few women scholars you should have asked to add greater depth to your series.
Meet @JeanneTheoharis, a Distinguished Professor of Political Science at Brooklyn College. She is the author of several award-winning books, including 'The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks' (Beacon Press). #Womenalsoknowhistory…

It is a somber day for me, remembering how 55 years ago #MalcolmX was assassinated on this day, remembering how Americans did not give Malcolm his roses during his life, remembering how in death Malcolm has been so misused and abused. 1/
Many Americans of all races kept their distance from Malcolm when he lived: scared of him snatching them out of their racial comfort zones. When he died on February 21, 1965, Americans were freed to remake Malcolm as opposed to allowing Malcolm to remake them. 2/
Malcolm X became a larger than life figure AFTER his death. After many Americans falsely framed him as a violent, anti-White, segregationist provocateur in his obituaries. After Alex Haley’s The Autobiography of Malcolm X was published with aspects of Malcolm missing in 1965. 3/

Remembering Malcolm X who was martyred on this day 55 years back. An inspiration for millions of people around the world. #MalcolmX
No one else said it like Malcolm X. When the fear is gone, that's when you really break free from the chains of servility.
In the Indian Muslim community also, there are too many House Ne*roes. #MalcolmX

Husband of musical queen @Beyonce & multimillionaire who gentrified his own hood using #EminentDomain #BarclaysCenter tells others #NipseyHussle was doin the same 2 #Crenshaw & crowd goes wild 🤦🏾‍♂️ I really thought I’d be spending my Sunday differently.
#GentrifyYourHood #JayZ /1
1st the source: A/b 7 yrs ago I 1st saw the documentary #BattleForBrooklyn which talked a/b #JayZ & #Beyonce's role in supporting the Brooklyn Nets #BarclaysCenter I dont think I've been able to fully 4give them 4 it, then again neither has apologized. /2
Gentrification isnt simply “neighborhood improvement” but is SYSTEMIC use of private forces & PUBLIC POLICY 2 forcibly displace low-income & vulnerable residents/biz owners from land & replace them w/more affluent ppl/uses to generate capital returns. Just ✔️ the root word. /3

.@NBCPhiladelphia You just devoted a full segment to lauding a convicted rapist. You gave #BillCosby's attorney seven minutes to talk about how "Some women lie" and Cosby's long-overdue rape conviction was "infidelity" Cosby and Camille "dealt with." This was disgraceful.
70 women have accused Cosby of rape. He was deemed a violent sexual predator by the court for his decades of drugging and raping women.

Your piece presented Cosby as if these assaults never happened. Your reporter dismissed the crimes Cosby was convicted of.
You showed clips of The Cosby Show and allowed Cosby's attorney to assert Cosby was a Civil Rights icon on par with #MLK #MalcolmX and #NelsonMandela. You shamed @NBCPhiladelphia and further traumatized Cosby's victims.

May Allah reward you @joebradford. The paradigm however is incorrect. Heraclius was a Byzantine ruler of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Elijah Muhammad on the other hand was a Baatini cult leader who promoted himself from Chief Minister to Messenger of Allah. #NOIcontradictions
This indeed is the error made when viewing the #NOI and it's offshoots: instead of seeing them as heretical Baatinis with more in common with Musailima, many see them as simple albeit, sinful Muslims. Yet sinful Muslims do not declare prophethood on one day & Godhood the next!
Moreover, there is no evidence to this day that Elijah Muhammad or his common law girlfriend Clara ever renounced the prophetic claims he made for over 40 years. His own nephew Sultan Muhammad Sr, declared publicly in 1990 that both Elijah & Clara died unrepentant with no shahada

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.

If you haven't been in school for a while (or are in a terrible school), some of the words might trip you up. and are two good resources to help you.

Ini ialah perkongsian tentang siapa itu Malcolm X dan apa yang diperjuangkannya.

Malcolm X dilahirkan pada 19 Mei, 1925 di Omaha, Nebraska, Amerika. Beliau merupakan anak keempat dari lapan orang adik-beradik kepada pasangan Encik Earl Little dan Puan Louise Little.
Malcolm X (nama sebenarnya Malcolm Little) telah melihat dan merasakan sendiri prejudis dan sikap rasis orang kulit putih terhadap bangsanya, apabila ayahnya sendiri dibunuh oleh puak pelampau kulit putih (Klu Klax Klan) ketika usianya 6 tahun.
