. . . "BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY". . .
MALCOLM X sought truth and action at all costs. He
launched an uncompromising attack on society’s most firmly
held injustices and proved, in doing so, the possibility of
overcoming any obstacle to accomplish any goal. He is
unparalleled as an icon for self-betterment and the serious
cultivation of one’s identity and belief system.
A dedicated, gifted, and legendary organizer of people,
Malcolm X always spoke to enlighten, to challenge and enrich
the beliefs of even his most dedicated followers. He always
moved forward, acting at every step to build his vision.
Any artist would do well to LIVE by these ideals. . .
An artist’s identity is always growing, outward and inward, into
the future and back to the beginning. And at the beginning,
we were KIDS. Free-spirited. No preconceived notions.
Kids love to create. We need to give them a chance to
think about what art can be -using more than just conventional
materials to express themselves ... "By Any Means Necessary".
All over the world, it’s important to recognize and encourage the
independence of thought and capacity for free association all
kids excel at. . . and we, as adults need to hold on to.
