Proud Moment


One of the finest moments
of my life. To be a part of
such a historic event (50th
Memorial of Malcolm X) in a 
historic place. (The Audubon
Ballroom section of the
Malcolm X & Dr. Betty Shabazz
Memorial Center) To honor a 
man who transitioned himself
to advocate and fight for not
only civil rights but human
rights. To perform in front
of his family & friends was
such an honor. One of his
daughters, Ilyasah Shabazz,
praised me for my poem,
"I Can't". I will cherish
this forever.

Honoring Brother Malcolm - 2.21.15


Spoken-word piece titled, "I Can't" (See, Hear, 
Speak or Breathe) describes the injustices towards 
African Americans in America. Initially, the video 
had no intended vision/direction. However, the 
thought of honoring Malcolm X based on the 
content of the piece, came into fruition. 
The thought created a life of it's own. 

February 21st, 2015 marks the 50th 
Commemoration of Malcolm X's Martyrdom. 
It will also be the date of the video release
 of "I Can't", as well as the tribute event
 at The Malcolm X & Betty Shabazz Memorial 
Center, formally the Audubon Ballroom where 
brother Malcolm was martyred. Glennjamin will 
also be on hand to perform, "I Can't", in honor 
of one of the most prominent figures in 
African American History.
