Forty years ago, yesterday, Malcolm X stood up at the Audubon Ballroom
in Harlem (New York) to speak. He was going to speak against the racial
segregation all over the US. He was going to appeal to his brothers and
sisters to resist and fight back against the “oppression of the white
man” when he was gunned down. More than one or two breathed a sigh of
relief at the top of the US establishment. One of the loudest voices
against injustice had been lost.
