The Birth of Proof: May 19, 1925
By Jason Goudlock,
May 29, 2008

For those who criticize society's downtrodden and stereotype the
impoverished as a class of undesirables and dirty-rotten failures, who will
never amount to anything.

Malcolm Little once felt the claustrophobia of the cold prison walls, yet he
triumphed and emerged as Minister Malcolm X (May 19, 1925 - Feb. 21, 1965),
whose charisma attracted international respect.

Through the radiant potency of his words, synonymous with inspiration, he
revolutionized the hearts and minds of a then unborn X generation.

His seeds of redemption pollinated the grassless landscapes of the
impoverished, which ultimately germinated and grew into a harvest of
self-sufficiency rooted in sovereignty.

Now, who would have ever thought the convict known as "Detroit Red" would
end up being immortalized as a "shinning prince" when his eulogy was read?

May his legacy remain as a pillar of undeniable proof that redemption may be
attained by anyone when opportunity is introduced.
