Malcolm X, a man who’s life and words shape how I see the world, would have been 82 years old today. Every month or so, I take out my collection of audio files and video clips, or I sit down and watch Spike Lee’s Malcolm X, because I continuously find new meaning and inspiration. Today, as I sat watching and listening to all these things in honor of his birthday, I’ve been thinking alot about how he changed in his life, and how his world view evolved after he went to Mecca. I wonder if I too will one day look back on some experience in my life as my “Mecca”.
In celebration of his life, one of the great video clips of his return from Mecca.
