Hope Faculty Quotes: Malcolm X

“I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being, first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”

Malcolm X

 

The honourable Malcolm X was a great speaker and leader of the African American Civil Rights struggle and movements. At the start, he could be considered as very militant for the cause but for his own-self, he grew into an educated, well travelled leader seeking the truth for his own enlightenment even if it became humbling and changed his path eventually costing his life.

That’s Hope Faculty

  1. I think the thirst for truth and justice makes a being human.

    1. Exactly! Its also a good place to start for your own integrity and wellbeing in life.

  2. Thank you for the beautiful and thoughtful summary. My hometown of Inkster, Michigan was the first place Malcolm lived right after he was released from prison, an important and formative time in his life. Malcolm worked as a furniture salesman at the Cut Rate Department Store in Inkster. This is where he lived when he first became a minister, at Temple Number One in Detroit. Unfortunately, his home in Inkster is on the city’s demolition list.

    Malcolm mentions Inkster in a speech on the same day as an attempted assassination on him, when his house was firebombed. That was the last speech he gave outside of New York, before he was assassinated just one week later. So Inkster was one of the first things and final things on his mind from the beginning right up to the end of his life as a minister. I hope the city of Inkster will consider these things as they decide the fate of his home.

    1. Great insight ‘never forgot where he came from’ like you said i hope Inkster will celebrate this great son of thiers and realise the impact of the great Malcolm had on the world and future generations
