Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Betty Shabazz, 63, remains in extremely critical condition. We air the interview Shabazz recently gave to Bernard White and Amy Goodman. Shabazz reflects on her late husband Malcolm X and his influence on the civil rights movement, the Nation of Islam, and the United States in general. Shabazz shares insights into the life and passions of Malcolm X, as well as her life with him before — and after — he was assassinated on February 21, 1965.
