A fantastic email from Farasat Latif, the Chair of Governors for Olive Tree School to the “dishonourable Member of Parliament” in Birmingham, Khalid Mahmood. Please see below.
Subject: Malcolm X – The House Negro and the Field Negro
The House Negro and the Field Negro, speech by the great Malcolm X, after the March on Washington (1963).
Dear Khalid Mahmood
I listened to this talk, and although it was delivered in 1963, thousands of miles away from Birmingham, I could swear that the speaker was talking about your good-self.
Without endorsing everything the speaker says, he does sum you up so perfectly.
Look forward to hearing from you.
