BIRTHDAYS OF THE MONTH



This month, we will be commemorating the birth of our historical leader, el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz. He was born Malcolm Little in Omaha, Nebraska on May 19, 1925. His father was an
organizer   in   Marcus Garvey's     movement. Malcolm   became   the national spokesman for the Nation of Islam by 1960. By 1964 he had built a mighty link between Africans throughout the world through his fiery, charismatic speeches of truth and his founding of the Organization of Afro-American
Unity, OAU. He was assassinated February 21, 1965.


We  will also be celebrating the birthday of a present day Black
leader,    Minister    Louis Farrakhan, born May 11, 1933. Minister Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam
and has fostered cooperative relations among all religions of
African People to uphold unity among Black   people.   He is the co-organizer of the Million Man March and is a charismatic speaker for African Americans in the 90's.

The success of Roots is demonstrated in several

ways. In 1999, the community asked Dr. Thompson to open another Roots as a charter school. Therefore, Roots Public Charter School was born as a protégé of the Roots Activity Learning Center. RALC alumni have successfully graduated from many of the finest area high schools, historically black colleges and universities, as well as from Harvard, Duke, Princeton, etc. RALC teachers and staff have received National teacher and principal of the year honors, and former students have achieved high on standardized tests and placed well in Spelling Bees and other academic competitions.
