Malcolm X (Happy Birthday!) OC

The final uncommissioned piece in the Who Said What series. The quote comes from his speech at the Founding Rally of the Organization of Afro-American Unity (28 June 1964), an organization he had hoped would become his main focus after departing the Nation of Islam. The "By Any Means Necessary" excerpt from his speech became the last major quote before his death less than a year later, and would define how his philosophy was understood.

"We declare our right on this earth to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being in this society, on this earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary."

Malcolm X | Art
