GREAT FATHERS IN BLACK HISTORY * MALCOLM X
Since it is Black History month I want to profile some of the great African American history who have done great things but also have balanced a steady family life and raised their kids. These men have been an asset to their families, but also to the communities that they have served.
The first person that I want to highlight is Malcolm X. We all know what Malcolm did for the community during the civil rights era. But many not know that he was a dedicated father to 6 daughters and husband. In fact, Malcolm’s wife Betty was pregnant with twins when Malcolm was assassinated in 1965.
