"If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything."
 
El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X). He was born Malcolm Little on May 19, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska. His mother, Louise Norton Little, was a homemaker occupied with the family's eight children. His father, Earl Little, was an outspoken Baptist minister.
 
in 1964 Malcolm went on a pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The trip proved life altering. For the first time, he shared his thoughts and beliefs with different cultures, and found the response to be overwhelmingly positive. He returned to the United States with a new outlook on integration and a new hope for the future. This time when Malcolm spoke, instead of just preaching to African-Americans, he had a message for all races.
