Miseducation

Malcolm was a highly disciplined individual. He was disciplined intellectually, he was disciplined morally and he was disciplined spiritually. He was a man of prayer.

He was asked one month before he was killed, in an interview with Jack Barnes and Barry Sheppard on January 18, 1965, “What do you think is responsible for race prejudice in the US?” Malcolm responded, “Ignorance, greed and a skillfully designed program of mis-education that goes right along with the American system of exploitation and oppression… So, it takes education to eliminate it. Just because you have colleges and universities, doesn’t mean you have education. The colleges and universities in the American educational system are skillfully used to mis-educate.”

May God have mercy on this intellectual, moral and spiritual giant.
[May 21, 1925 – February 21, 1965]
