On this day in history: May 19, 1536 - In the first public execution of an English queen, Anne Boleyn is beheaded. In her speech, Boleyn has nothing but good things to say about her husband, Henry VIII: "I pray God save the king and send him long to reign over you, for a gentler nor a more merciful prince was there never: and to me he was ever a good, a gentle and sovereign lord."
Born on this day in history: May 19, 1925 - Malcolm X (1925 - 1965) Born Malcolm Little in Omaha, NE, activist Malcolm X spent 10 years in prison for burglary (1946), where he discovered the anti-white Black Muslims. He came to national attention via writings and a TV documentary (1959) that portrayed him as a threat to white people. Breaking with the Muslims (1964), he worked to internationalize the Afro-American struggle, forming the Organization of African American Unity. Assassinated in New York City, Malcolm X remains a powerful influence and transformed a generation of African-Americans.
