The National Black United Front will be sponsoring a trip from Washington DC to Harlem NY, to participate in the 51st Annual Malcolm X Day Piligrimage to the eternal resting place of Malcolm and Betty Shabazz. In addition to the ceremony, paticipants will also be able to visit the historic 125th Street in Harlem NY.

Buses and Cars will assemble at the Harlem State Office Building on 125th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Blvd at 9:00 AM and proceed at 10:00 AM to Ferncliff Cementary in Hartsdale, NY. The Ceremony will last approximatelyone hour after which we will return to Harlem to take part in several activities and rallies sponsored by many organizations throughout the day.

The O.A.A.U. initiated the pilgrimage in 1965, after the burial of Malcolm X, to honor and show respect for our people’s fallen leader as well as to educate future generations about the legacy of Malcolm X and his effort to liberate African People’s minds and bodies. The ceremony was designed by Sister Ella Collins, the sister of Malcolm X, then President of the O.A.A.U., and was directed by her until Rodnell Collins, Bro. James Small and Bro. Willie Stark were appointed to continue the pilgrimage. Today the pilgrimage is led by a new generation of young leaders.

Transportation will depart the Anacostia Metro Station at 4:00 am and return at 10:30 pm.

THE OTHER SIDE OF KING
By Brother Salim K. T. Adofo

Dr. Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., a front line freedom fighter in the fight to uplift the Black community. He is often quoted, referenced to and honored, but was he ever understood? Many people will remember Dr. King for his position on non-violence and his “I Have a Dream” speech.
However, contradictions in White Americas treatment towards Blacks, which were exposed by the Black Power Movement, fashioned another side of King, a side that accelerated Dr. Kings’inevitable assassination.

In Dr. Kings’ book “Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community”, he wrote, “Black Power, in its broad and positive meaning, is a call to Black people to amass the political and economic strength to achieve their legitimate goals. No one can deny that the negro is in dire need of this kind of legitimate power.”

Dr. King also went on to write, “Black Power is also a call for the pooling of Black financial resources to achieve economic security. Through the pooling of such resources and the development of habits of
thrift and techniques of wise investments, the negro will be doing his share to grapple with his problem of economic deprivation. If Black Power means the development of this kind of strength within the negro community, then it is a quest for basic, necessary, legitimate power.”

It is important to note, these ideas that Dr. King had on Black politics and economics, are the same positions that Malcolm X communicated in his definition on the political and economic aspects of Black Nationalism. The reason this is important is the F.B.I. felt it would be necessary
to eliminate Dr. King if he was to use Black Nationalist tactics. This can be seen through the Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) of the F.B.I.

COINTELPRO was and still is, a program designed to neutralize, disrupt and dismantle black organizations. On March 4th, 1968 the F.B.I released a classified document that stated, "Prevent the rise of a "Messiah" who could unify and electrify the militant Black Nationalist movement. Malcolm X might have been such a "messiah," he is the martyr of the movement today. Martin Luther King, Stokely Carmichael, and Elijah Muhammad all aspire to
this position. Elijah Muhammad is less of a threat because of his age. King could be a real contender for this position should he abandon his supposed "obedience" to "white, liberal doctrines" (nonviolence) and embrace Black Nationalism.

On April 3rd, 1968 in Memphis Tennessee, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave the speech that is now known as "I've Been to the Mountain Top." In his speech stated, “And our agenda calls for withdrawing economic support from you. And so, as a result of this, we are asking you tonight, to go out and tell your neighbors not to buy Coca-Cola in Memphis. Go by and tell them not to buy Sealtest milk. Tell them not to buy what is the other
bread? Wonder Bread. And what is the other bread company, Jesse? Tell them not to buy Hart's bread. As Jesse Jackson has said, up to now, only the garbage men have been feeling pain; now we must kind of redistribute the pain. We are choosing these companies because they haven't
been fair in their hiring policies; and we are choosing them because they can begin the process of saying, they are going to support the needs and the rights of these men who are on strike. And then they can move on downtown and tell Mayor Loeb to do what is right. But not only that,
we've got to strengthen black institutions.

“I call upon you to take your money out of the banks downtown and deposit your money in Tri-State Bank we want a "bank-in" movement in Memphis. So go by the savings and loan association. I'm not asking you something we don't do ourselves at SCLC. Judge Hooks and others will tell you that we have an account here in the savings and loan association from the
Southern Christian Leadership Conference. We're just telling you to follow what we're doing. Put your money there. You have six or seven black insurance companies in Memphis. Take out your insurance there. We want to have an "insurance-in. Now these are some practical things we can
do. We begin the process of building a greater economic base. And at the same time, we are putting pressure where it really hurts. I ask you to follow through here."

This would become Kings last speech. The very next day, April 4th which was exactly one month to the day after the COINTELPRO memo was released; Dr. King became a victim of American terrorism against Black people. He was shot in the neck by a white supremacist sniper under the direction of the United States Government. Why? As one can see, according to Dr.
Kings last speech and his writings another side of Dr. King was developing. A side, that began to embrace Black Nationalist tactics and strategies, as a means to achieve freedom, justice and equality for Black people.
