Malcolm X on John Brown

John Brown was a guerrilla fighter, who worked together with Harriet Tubman, and who fought and died for African American National Liberation. This month is the 150th anniversary of militant white abolotionist John Brown’s armed raid on the federal arsenal at Harper’s Ferry, an important moment in the African American Liberation struggle. To mark the occasion, here is a quote from Malcolm X in 1965 (My year of birth): There are many white people in this country, especially the younger generation, who realize that the injustice that has been done and is being done to black people cannot go on without the chickens coming home to roost eventually.
