Malcolm X was murdered on February 21, 1965. On February 14, the day after his home was fire-bombed, he spoke at Ford Auditorium in Detroit. This week we’ll listen to that speech as part of a Black History Month program first heard on Culture of Protest in February 2015. We’ll also hear the remarkable eulogy delivered by Ossie Davis. The original program coincided with the death of the great Detroit poet, David Levine and we’ll hear  him read ‘What Work Means’. And a remarkable rendition of ‘Free & Equal Blues” by Paul Robeson and  ‘Strange Fruit’  sung by Cassandra Wilson ends this episode.
Culture of Protest is on the radio Thurs 2/11/21 6 pm pst –in SB at kcsb 91.9fm  & www.kcsb.org worldwide
