Breaking An UnEasy Silence - Malcolm Shabazz

"How do you [fill out an application at] Denny’s and put down Princeton and the Sorbonne as your education?"

Personally, I still find it difficult to even think about this young black man and the events that led up to the most horrendous of deaths - dying because you are trying to save the life of one you love.
