Civil Rights advocate Malcolm X forever changed the way Americans talk about race and inequality. But the 1847 home in which he spent the first part of his life has been allowed to deteriorate. A building that should be an important landmark--for both historic and architectural reasons--is badly decayed from rot and leaks. The National Historic Trust has placed the Malcolm X boyhood home on its list of endangered treasures and hopes to raise $750,000 for its restoration and repair. Tell Boston City Council to help fund this important project, so integral to American history!
We the undersigned are dismayed that the Malcolm X boyhood home has fallen into such terrible ruin. This should never have happened! This important landmark is vital to America's heritage and sense of history and identity. The Malcolm X home should definitely be saved and you should put it in your annual budget. Please help the National Historic Trust save this treasure!
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
