malcolm x assassinated 40 years ago today

Just heard this on AirAmericaRadio's Morning Sedition with Mark Riley and Marc Maron.

Stories here and here.

Democracy Now has a fascinating piece called The Undiscovered Malcolm X: Stunning New Info on the Assassination, His Plans to Unite the Civil Rights and Black Nationalist Movements & the 3 'Missing' Chapters from His Autobiography.

A couple of really great Malcolm X resources:

"It is a time for martyrs now, and if I am to be one, it will be for the cause of brotherhood. That's the only thing that can save this country.
"~~~Malcolm X, NYC, 19 February 1965
