Band 3 - Malcolm X - His Wit and Wisdom (Vinyl, LP)
Actually, I had a nice long phone conversation with them a couple of weeks ago. Add to that, though may be somewhat similar, our market and focus is different. As is, ArtHouse will have some craft works but, it is not exclusively craft and education-oriented…At the end of the conversation, it felt great to know that we really are interested in the same ideas revolving around creating and supporting the creative community in a non-competive form which includes our own businesses.
Thanks for the interview and all that you do Josh. We got some rad new shirts yesterday. That includes tax! New Moon will feature 24 tracks and will be released on double vinyl. Sweet Adeline, originally a fan site that has now more or less become the official Elliott Smith web site, reports the set will also be available on 2 CDs. New Moon is the second posthumous release of Smith material. From a Basement on the Hill was comprised of songs recorded for what was intended to be a double album.
Longtime Smith collaborators Joanna Bolme and Rob Schnapf oversaw the finishing of the album, and it was not without controversy. Smith worked with numerous producers during the Basement sessions and there are differing accounts of how he would have released the album had he lived to see its completion. Interesting, according to this report, songs omitted from Basement will not be surfacing on New Moon. Some of these tracks were recorded and mixed by Schnapf, while final mixes were completed by Larry Crane, hired by the Smith estate.
Smith recorded five albums prior to his death. Here is a great site called Elliott Smith B-sides that has alot of rare material for download. You can listen to tracks off the new record here. Just enough to hold you over until we get this item on the shelves.
And here is a link to a bigger graphic of the cover. Certainly coming a long way from when I first saw them playing a living room on Forbes St.
As well as a wide variety of back catalog items and represses. Are we complaining? I appreciate being able to help with a record store. The ever-industrious James Siboni is planning on overseeing the newly introduced mailorder aspect of the store.
No good. This should please people who travel pretty far to get to the store, people who were kind of bummed Dead Tank our current in-house label that used to be an online distributor stopped doing mailorder, and people who like buying Defiance Ohio and Dr.
Dre records at the same time. The first thing we thought about is how mailorder would effect you loving locals. New catalog additions, including new releases, will not be available for mailorder for at least a week. And we still have a hold box. We are still totally Jacksonville-centric! More information on mailorder as we get it all up and running. Summer is coming. Get stoked. Create a free website or blog at WordPress. Older Entries ».

The September issue of Ebony dramatized Malcolm X's defiance of these threats by publishing a photograph of him holding an M1 carbine while peering out a window. Get your hand outta my pocket! As Malcolm X and his bodyguards tried to quell the disturbance, 1718 a man rushed forward and shot him once in the chest with a sawed-off shotgun   and two other men charged the stage firing semi-automatic handguns. One gunman, Nation of Islam member Talmadge Hayer also known as Thomas Haganwas beaten by the crowd before police arrived.
At trial Hayer confessed, but refused to identify the other assailants except to assert that they were not Butler and Johnson. Butler, today known as Muhammad Abdul Aziz, was paroled in and became the head of the Nation's Harlem mosque in ; he maintains his innocence. Released inhe maintained his innocence until his death in August The public viewing, February 23—26 at Unity Funeral Home in Harlem, was attended by some 14, to 30, mourners.
There are those who will consider it their duty, as friends of the Negro people, to tell us to revile him, to flee, even from the presence of his memory, to save ourselves by writing him out of the history of our turbulent times. And we will answer and say to them: Did you ever talk to Brother Malcolm? Did you ever touch him, or have him smile at you? Did you ever really listen to him? Did he ever do a mean thing? Was he ever himself associated with violence or any public disturbance?
For if you did you would know him. And if you knew him you would know why we must honor him. Actor and activist Ruby Dee and Juanita Poitier wife of Sidney Poitier established the Committee of Concerned Mothers to raise money for a home for his family and for his children's educations. Reactions to Malcolm X's assassination were varied. While we did not always see eye to eye on methods to solve the race problem, I always had a deep affection for Malcolm and felt that he had a great ability to put his finger on the existence and root of the problem.
He was an eloquent spokesman for his point of view and no one can honestly doubt that Malcolm had a great concern for the problems that we face as a race. Elijah Muhammad told the annual Savior's Day convention on February 26 that "Malcolm X got just what he preached," but denied any involvement with the murder.
Writer James Baldwinwho had been a friend of Malcolm X's, was in London when he heard the news of the assassination. He responded with indignation towards the reporters interviewing him, shouting, "You did it! It is because of you—the men that created this white supremacy—that this man is dead. You are not guilty, but you did it. Outside of the U. In China, the People's Daily described Malcolm X as a martyr killed by "ruling circles and racists" in the United States; his assassination, the paper wrote, demonstrated that "in dealing with imperialist oppressors, violence must be met with violence.
That title points to the nature of Malcolm's life and death. Malcolm X was clearly a product of the hate and violence invested in the Negro's blighted existence in this nation. It is a testimony to Malcolm's personal depth and integrity that he could not become an underworld Czar, but turned again and again to religion for meaning and destiny.
Malcolm was still turning and growing at the time of his brutal and meaningless assassination. Like the murder of Lumumba, the murder of Malcolm X deprives the world of a potentially great leader. I could not agree with either of these men, but I could see in them a capacity for leadership which I could respect, and which was just beginning to mature in judgment and statesmanship.
Within days, the question of who bore responsibility for the assassination was being publicly debated. On February 23, James Farmer, leader of the Congress of Racial Equalityannounced at a news conference that local drug dealers, and not the Nation of Islam, were to blame. Into the hall sauntered about a dozen policemen. They were strolling at about the pace one would expect of them if they were patrolling a quiet park.
They did not seem to be at all excited or concerned about the circumstances. I could hardly believe my eyes. Here were New York City policemen, entering a room from which at least a dozen shots had been heard, and yet not one of them had his gun out!
As a matter of absolute fact, some of them even had their hands in their pockets. The Shabazz family are among those who have accused Louis Farrakhan of involvement in Malcolm X's assassination. Was Malcolm your traitor or ours? And if we dealt with him like a nation deals with a traitor, what the hell business is it of yours?
A nation has to be able to deal with traitors and cutthroats and turncoats. In a 60 Minutes interview that aired during MayFarrakhan stated that some things he said may have led to the assassination of Malcolm X. No consensus has been reached on who was responsible for the LP). KennedyMartin Luther King Jr. Kennedy were among dozens of Americans who signed a public statement calling for a truth and reconciliation commission to persuade Congress or the Justice Department to review the assassinations of all four leaders during LP) s.
A February 21, press conference attended by three of Malcolm X's daughters and members of deceased NYPD undercover officer Raymond Wood's family released his authorized posthumous letter that stated in part: "I was told to encourage leaders and members of the civil rights groups to commit felonious acts.
Kelly Wood stated that the letter was created by her cousin Reggie Wood for attention and book sales. Except for his autobiography, Malcolm X left no published writings. His philosophy is known almost entirely from the many speeches and interviews he gave from until his death. While he was a member of the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X taught its beliefs, and his statements often began with the phrase "The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us that Malcolm X taught that black people were the original people of the world,  and that whites were a race of devils who were created by an evil scientist named Yakub.
Malcolm X said that Islam was the "true religion of black mankind" and that Christianity was "the white man's religion" that had been imposed upon African Americans by their slave-masters.
While the civil rights movement fought against racial segregationMalcolm X advocated the complete separation of blacks from whites. The Nation of Islam proposed the establishment of a separate country for African Americans in the southern  or southwestern United States  as an interim measure until African Americans could return to Africa. The common goal of 22 million Afro-Americans is respect as human beings. We can never get civil rights in America until our human rights are first restored.
We will never be recognized as citizens there until we are first recognized as humans. Just as the violation of human rights of our brothers and sisters in South Africa and Angola is an international issue and has brought the racists of South Africa and Portugal under attack from all other independent governments at the United Nations, once the miserable plight of the 22 million Afro-Americans is also lifted to the level of human rights our struggle then becomes an international issue and the direct concern of all other civilized governments.
We can then take the racist American Government before the World Court and have the racists in it exposed and condemned as the criminals that they are. After leaving the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X announced his willingness to work with leaders of the civil rights movement,  though he advocated some changes to their policies.
He felt that calling the movement a struggle for civil rights would keep the issue within the United States while changing the focus to human rights would make it an international concern. The movement could then bring its complaints before the United Nations, where Malcolm X said the emerging nations of the world would add their support. Malcolm X argued that if the U. He said that he and the other members of the OAAU were determined to defend themselves from aggressors, and to secure freedom, justice and equality "by whatever means necessary".
Malcolm X stressed the global perspective he gained from his international travels. He LP) the "direct connection" between the domestic struggle of African Americans for equal rights with the independence struggles of Third World nations.
When the reporter told him it seemed to be, Malcolm X told him: "Then I'm for it. Although he no longer called for the separation of black people from white people, Malcolm X continued to advocate black nationalism, which he defined as self-determination for the African-American community.
After his Hajj, Malcolm X articulated a view of white people and racism that represented a deep change from the philosophy he had supported as a minister of the Nation of Islam. In a famous letter from Mecca, he wrote that his experiences with white people during his pilgrimage convinced him to "rearrange" his thinking about race and "toss aside some of [his] previous conclusions". I realized racism isn't just a black and white problem.
It's brought bloodbaths to about every nation on earth at one time or another. Well, I've lived to regret that incident. In many parts of the African continent, I saw white students helping black people. Something like this kills a lot of argument. I did many things as a [Black] Muslim that I'm sorry for now. Well, I guess a man's entitled to make a fool of himself if he's ready to pay the cost.
It cost me 12 years. That was a bad scene, brother. There have been multiple books and a few articles that have delved into the purported bisexuality of Malcolm X. Author Rob Redding in his book The Professor: Witnessing White Power asserted that Malcolm X would not have been as fearless as he was if he didn't witness the mortal vulnerability of white men in a sexual encounter. In the book, Marable asserted that "Malcolm X had exaggerated his early criminal career and had engaged in an early homosexual relationship with a white businessman.
If set in the context of the s and s, these acts position him not as a 'homosexual lover,' as has been asserted, but in the pattern of 'straight trade' — heterosexual men open to sex with homosexuals — an understanding that in turn affords insights into the black revolutionary's mature masculinity. Malcolm X's family has pushed back on these insights into his personal life. His daughter Ilyasah Shabazz said she would have known about these encounters before abruptly walking out on an interview on NPR.
Shabazz said: "I think the things that I take issue with are the fact that he said my father engaged in a bisexual relationship, a homo - you know, he had a gay lover who was an elder white businessman, I think, in his late 50s when my father was in his teens. And, you know, my father was an open book.
And we actually have four of the missing chapters from the autobiography. And, you know, he is very clear in his activities, which nothing included being gay. And certainly he didn't have anything against gay - he was for human rights, human justice, you know. So if he had a gay encounter, he likely would've talked about it. And what he did talk about was someone else's encounter. Malcolm X has been described as one of the greatest and most influential African Americans in history.
In the late s, increasingly radical black activists based their movements largely on Malcolm X and his teachings. The Black Power movement,   the Black Arts Movement  and the widespread adoption of the slogan " Black is beautiful "  can all trace their roots to Malcolm X.
During the late s and early s, there was a resurgence of interest in his life among young people. Hip-hop groups such as Public Enemy adopted Malcolm X as an icon,  and his image was displayed in hundreds of thousands of homes, offices, and schools,  as well as on T-shirts and jackets.
InTime named The Autobiography of Malcolm X one of the ten most LP) nonfiction books of the 20th century. Malcolm X was an inspiration for several fictional characters. The house that once stood at Pinkney Street in North OmahaNebraska, was the first home of Malcolm Little with his birth family.
The house was torn down in by new owners who did not know of its connection with Malcolm X. The school is located in the building where Little attended elementary school. Many cities have renamed streets after Malcolm X.
The U. Postal Service issued a Malcolm X postage stamp in The memorial is located in the Audubon Ballroom, where Malcolm X was assassinated. Woodruff Library. Arnold Perl and Marvin Worth attempted to create a drama film based on The Autobiography of Malcolm Xbut when people close to the subject declined to talk to them they decided to make a documentary instead.
