After traveling Africa and the Middle East, Malcolm X (el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz) returned to America with some new perspectives.

In honor of what would be Malcolm’s 93rd birthday, Erykah Badu shared this clip with her Twitter followers:

“Usually, the degree of progress can never be separated from the woman. If you’re in a country that’s progressive, the woman is progressive… But I’m every backward country, you’ll find the women are backward. And in every country where education is not stressed, it’s because the women don’t have education.”

These observations thoroughly convinced Brother Malcolm that women’s freedom and education should be a top priority in every society.
