Malcolm X Commemoration Committee to observe the anniversaries of the assassinations of Malcolm X and Fred Hampton‭ at forum, April 13th

On‭ ‬Saturday,‭ ‬April‭ ‬13th,‭ ‬2019,‭ ‬the Malcolm X Commemoration Committee will present a powerful forum observing the anniversaries of the assassinations of Malcolm X and Fred Hampton‭!

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬This engaging forum is called‭ ‘‬Can’t Kill Fightin‭’ ‬For Freedom!To Malcolm And Fred With Love‭’‬ and will take place at CEMOTAP,‭ ‬135-05‭ ‬Rockaway Blvd,‭ ‬So Ozone Park Queens from‭ ‬1‭ ‬to‭ ‬4pm.

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬The line-up for this forum includes a stellar panel of participants,‭ ‬Prof.‭ ‬William Sales,‭ ‬author of‭ ‬From Civil Rights To Black Liberation:‭ ‬Malcolm X and the OAAU,‭ ‬Basir Mchawi,‭ ‬longtime broadcaster,‭ ‬educator and a leader of the legendary Brooklyn establishment‭ ‬The East,‭ ‬Imam Talib AbdurRashid,‭ ‬Imam‭ (‬leader‭) ‬of Malcolm’s Islamic continuum,‭ ‬The Mosque of Islamic Brotherhood,‭ ‬Cyril‭ ‬Innis,‭ ‬better known as our beloved‭ ‘‬Captain Bullwhip,‭’‬ who will share important background on the underappreciated emergence of the‭ ‬Queens Chapter of the Black Panther Party with People’s artist‭ ‬Yasmine Sutton,‭ ‬as well as his recollections of Malcolm’s impact on their Queens‭’ ‬neighborhood.

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬This forum was originally scheduled for February‭ ‬16th in anticipation of the anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X.‭ ‬It was postponed to observe the memorial of a hugely beloved exiled comrade Nehanda Abiodun.

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬The panel will take not only take on the painful subject of Malcolm’s assassination,‭ ‬but will also take on how the Black Liberation Movement had to endure the onslaught of repression from his assassination to the assassination of premier Black Panther leader Fred Hampton several years later.

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬The event also comes on the heels of the recent death of Al Mustafa Shabazz,‭ ‬who is believed to have been the shotgunner in Malcolm’s assassination.‭ ‬Shabazz died on‭ ‬October‭ ‬24,‭ ‬2018.

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ “‬Our beloved chair Dequi Sadiki once said that‭ ‘‬Our community has never recovered from Malcolm’s assassination.‭’

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ “‬One of the painful layers the global African world has had to endure with the three key assassinations of the‭ ‬60s,‭ ‬Lumumba,‭ ‬Malcolm and Fred,‭ ‬is that they were all executed with violently self-hating Black hands and what that has meant for the eruption and the continuation of the internecine violence that has plagued the African world since then has not come anywhere near being adequately addressed‭!

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ “‬At the very least,‭ ‬let us pray and offer that with the death of this man,‭ ‬Al-Mustafa Shabazz,‭ ‬several months ago,‭ ‬is that the sick,‭ ‬self-hating internalized oppression and animosity so destructively thick back then now goes in the ground with him,‭ ‬so we can all begin some kind of real healing here on this front.

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ “‬Let us also absolutely appreciate that the generation that Malcolm inspired,‭ ‬with his hot blood raw in their eyes,‭ ‬did step up and dare to move us all forward facing down fascist-laden repression all along the way,‭ ‬and we need to strengthen our resolve to help a new generation rise and stand squarely on their shoulders as they did on his.‭

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ “‬Let us all step it up to free all of those still in bondage from that hateful matrix of repression.‭

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ “‬Let us carry on the tradition,‭” ‬concluded MXCC’s founding press officer Zayid Muhammad passionately.

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬Malcolm X was assassinated on‭ ‬February‭ ‬21,‭ ‬1965‭ ‬at the Audubon Ballroom.‭ ‬Fred Hampton,‭ ‬the compelling chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party was on‭ ‬December‭ ‬4,‭ ‬1969.‭ ‬This year will mark the‭ ‬50th anniversary of his assassination.

 ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬For more information,‭ ‬please call or text press officer Zayid Muhammad at‭ ‬973‭ ‬202‭ ‬0745...
