SummaryFebruary 21, 2015 marks the 50-year anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X. At it's First Congress 34 years ago the African People's Socialist Party (APSP) resolved to institutionalize February 21 as the Day of the African Martyr. The APSP "calls on all African revolutionaries of all countries to raise high, in a revolutionary manner, the heroic memory of all our fallen martyrs, of all those in every city, village, community and country where they fell as evidence of the determination of our people to fight every battle on every front until liberty has been won." As African Martyrs Day events are held this weekend throughout the U.S. and the world, Uhuru Radio brings you a presentation made by APSP Chairman Omali Yeshitela in 1998 at the Uhuru House in Oakland, California where he discusses the significance of Malcolm X in the struggle for African liberation, the role of the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan in attempting to silence Malcolm X, and the task of the revolutionary movement to take up the mantle of revolution til victory.
