Borne May 19, 1922 - Mrs. Yuri Kochiyama shares the same birthday as Malcolm X which explains their special friendship that only lasted 2 years.
You're preaching to choir, sistah. (smh)In your first post you referenced Yuri Kochiyama cradling Malcolm's head as he died and posted related photos.
And I posted a docu-movie titled "Dead Of a Prophet: The Last Days of Malcolm X" which also features her in it so any could see/hear her in the flesh.
smh..... Lord, my People, my People, sometimes.
Wonder why this inspiring Japanese-American said "Africans in America" and not "people of color in America?"The roots will always continue to grow and the seeds of Malcolm…his ideas…they’re everywhere and they’re growing in the fertile minds of young blacks and the future generation of new Africans in America will continue to fight the struggle that he could not see through to the end…”
Just saw a documentary on a Chinese-American who was active in the 1960s. Thought it was Yuri until I checked this forum. Course I had to first FIND this forum.But for decades after her brief friendship with Malcolm X, Kochiyama remained committed to causes in the black, Latino and Asian-American communities.
