Mayor's Declaration Of Malcolm X Day Criticized

The mayor's call for unity may be further dividing the city. That's what a former East Baton Rouge Metro councilman says about Sharon Weston Broome's recognition of Malcolm X.

Broome last week proclaimed Friday as Malcolm X Day, while also calling for unity across Baton Rouge.

Former Councilman Joel Boe said Tuesday that seems hypocritical since Malcolm X preached segregation, but the mayor's office tells The Advocate Malcolm X in his later years called for all races to work together.
