Although he died long before the Black Lives Matter movement was born, Malcolm X resonates with the stand against institutional racism and inequalities in the justice system in the US that the movement seeks to address.

Malcolm fought relentlessly for the human rights of African-Americans, as opposed to their civil rights.

What is the legacy of Malcolm X for the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement? Is there advice that the movement should be mindful of? Is there a difference between civil rights and human rights? How can the oppressed in different settings link up and learn about and from each other about how to fight the oppression.
