Porsha Williams celebrated the iconic figure of Malcolm X, telling fans that what he said was one of her mom’s first pieces of advice that she passed along to her. Check out what she is referring to in the Instagram post below.
‘??Happy Birthday to one of the most iconic figures! “A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything. “ Malcolm X This quote is one of the first pieces of advice my mom passed down to me! Thank you, Malcolm X, for your sacrifice❤??’ Porsha captioned her post that features a picture of Malcolm X.
If you don’t know, this man was an African-American Muslim minister and a human rights activist.
His admirers saw him as a courageous advocate for the rights of black people, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans.
Haters, on the other hand, accused him of preaching racism and violence. Malcolm X was named as one of the greatest and most influential African Americans in history. He died back in 1965 at the age of 40.
