Cuba pays tribute to Malcolm X on the anniversary of his murder

Havana, 21 Feb.- The President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, reminded Malcolm X, defender of human rights and freedom of African Americans in the United States, on the occasion of the 59th anniversary of his murder today.

The Head of State assured on social network X, that Cuba pays tribute to the memory of those who challenged the (American) empire from their guts, with a devastating oratory that inspired protests and rebellions against racism, the exploitation and interference of the United States in other nations.

Malcolm X was born in Omaha, Nebraska, on May 19, 1925 under the given name Malcolm Little, which was later changed to X, in reference to the unknown surname of the slaves who arrived in American territory.

Considered one of the most prolific leaders of African-American movements in the northern country, Malcolm X became a very influential figure in the history of the United States, American writer Rosemari Mealy once told Prensa Latina.

The author of the book Fidel and Malcolm X,Memories of a Meeting assured in 2022 that the teachings inherited from him are like tools of liberation and that with words and deeds he showed that men cannot be dehumanized by the color of the skin.

In the aforementioned text, Mealy recounted the Black leader’s welcome to Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro and the island delegation attending the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN).

Fidel Castro and his companions were invited by Malcolm X to stay at the Theresa hotel, owned by an African-American friend in Harlem, where he assured him they would be welcomed with open hearts and arms.

On February 21, 1965, at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, Malcolm X was on his way to an auditorium when he was shot in the chest on at least 16 occasions. (PL) (Photo: Trabajadores Digital Newspaper).
