Character AnalysisReverend Earl Little
About a short man, who fathered a tall man, who happened to be a Garveyite, or in other words a follower of Marcus Garvey (gee, Mal couldn't take he was short, same as my first husband couldn't take that his Dad was short either):Malcolm's father, Earl Little, a Baptist minister by profession, was also an organizer for the militant Universal Negro Improvement Association, a black nationalist group led by the Jamaican Marcus Garvey. Malcolm remembers him as a confident, self-sufficient man, willing to stand up to white men. It was this aspect of his personality which resulted in his death. His organizing activities in Omaha, Nebraska, caused trouble with the Ku Klux Klan. His house in Lansing, Michigan, was burned to the ground by a white racist group, the Black Legionnaires; it is likely that this group murdered him.
Reverend Little was vociferously proud of his blackness and proud of his African heritage. Yet, even he seems to have been a victim of white "brainwashing"; that is, he preferred his lightest-skinned child, Malcolm, to all the rest.
As a father and husband, he was a harsh man. He and his wife often fought violently, and he frequently whipped the children. Yet his strong authority held the family together, and after his death, it rapidly dissolved.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Adolph Hitler, everyone else who ever wrote a book from a jail cell - where did you go?
No description from even the world’s greatest writer can put into words how important he was to the fabric of the times. While not the only activist fighting for freedom, he was the face of the movement; the one people turned towards when guidance was needed. He fought for perceived unalienable rights, went toe-to-toe with the government and survived an assassination attempt on his life while really “in the streets.” Put it this way, had King been a rapper, he’d be glorified for actually living what he spoke.
Several quotes from Saturday’s event paint the picture of a generation of people who adored Martin, but one in particular sticks out. An older gentleman said, “I’m not sure where we, as a country, would be without that man. So often I wanted to fight back, riot over injustices I witnessed, but I thought about what he would want. He took all of our frustrations and placed them on his shoulders. That took more pride, courage and probably a fair share of insanity that anyone will ever imagine. God bless, Dr. King. He wasn’t perfect – no man is – but he is the closest thing I’ve seen towards a biblical figure in all my life.”
I’m sure I left out a sentence or a word, but that’s he gist of what he preached. More importantly, it was proof Martin’s “dream” remains subjective and one that’s stood the test of time long after he took his final breath on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel on April 4, 1968. At the risk of coming off cheesy, the crater MLK has left on myself and the world brings me back to my favorite quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson.
To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
