Before I Black Pt. 2 - Malcolm's X

Before I Black Pt. 2 - Malcolm's X

This is definitely a story from the other side of the gun. When people think of injustice, the disenfranchised, and often trivialized voices of minority victims, it is usually from behind a protective glass so to speak, so as to not step too close to the dangers. Here I've attempted to weave together a vivid picture of social injustice for any and all that dare to get close. Thank you for readingKaleb Blackman and the Knox Twins are big time, the best that Langston Reigns Middle School has to offer. Like most boys, they love the spotlight, totally ambitious, yet unaware of the many vices that often come with it. In what has become a way of life all too familiar where the three boys have grown up, their story will determine if their loss was in vein. If they are indeed destined to overcome the stereotypes, the peer pressures, and the trials determined to rip them apart, it’ll be because they stuck to their principles and by each other’s side. This is the journey of a friend, a son, and ultimately of a survivor. This is to remembering a life before everything became only a synthesis of color, before everything had a price, and when each child was truly a blank slate of potential. This is remembering a life, Before I Black.
