The Militant Labor Forum presents:
  Malcolm X: the Relevance of his Example and Ideas
for Today’s Fighters for Social Justice
       The struggles in the 1950s and 1960s that
brought down Jim Crow segregation laid the foundation
for the emergence of Malcolm X, an outstanding leader
not only of the oppressed Black nationality but also
of working people and youth in the United States
whatever their skin color or national origin.
       Even prior to being forced out of the Nation of
Islam in early 1964 Malcolm had been coming to
revolutionary and internationalist political views --
denouncing every aspect of anti-Black racism and its
economic and social consequences, as well as
condemning the plunder and domination of the peoples
of Africa, Asia, and Latin America by Washington and
other imperialist regimes.
       During the last year of his life Malcolm X went
through a rapid political evolution to carefully
thought-out anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist
positions -- a process cut short by his brutal
assassination on February 21, 1965. 
       Come discuss how the political ideas and the
example in action of this revolutionary leader can
help chart a road forward for workers, farmers, and
youth fighting to change the world today.
