Malcolm X observation

On this special Family Hour commemorating the 84th birthday of Brother Malcolm X, Minister Evans noted that black people either like or dislike Malcolm X. We can disagree with a leader's tactics, but we must analyze the total picture in terms of the leader's organizing. In his final days, Malcolm was trying to organize a nationalist power base, but he had little help. His team was waiting for direction while he was out of the country traveling. We let Malcolm die because of our lack of organization. We cannot organize when we are complaining and not performing a self analysis of ourselves. Part of our problem is that we fall in the self-inferiority complex--we allow others to intimidate us. We must encourage intelligent people to be intelligent and teach our young people to organize.

Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. is now an ancestor!

The Rochester (NY) community and the Elyria (OH) community are saddened by the passing of a distinguished scholar, researcher, community organizer, teacher, case manager, and clergyman, the renowned Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr, who transitioned on Sunday, September 9. from a brief illness.

This morning (September 14, 2018) will be his homegoing service at Aenon Baptist Church, 175 Genesee Street, Rochester NY 14611.

Please keep the Minister's immediate and extended family, and the First Community Interfaith Institute of Rochester and Elyria in your prayers.

= If you are in the Rochester area please pick up a copy of the September 12 edition of the Challenger Community News. On page 2 is a beautiful article that summed up the legacy of this great man. I did not get the permission of the  Challenger Community News to reprint their article, thus, I cannot include it in the blog at this time.
