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 every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

Wilfred Little died in Detroit Tuesday. To those who did not know Wilfred Little, he will be remembered primarily as the eldest brother of slain black leader Malcolm X. However, those who knew him well, or even by casual acquaintance, will remember him as an extraordinary figure in his own right — an inspirational teacher, and dedicated community activist in Detroit for nearly five decades. He died yesterday on his brother’s birthday. Last May 19th, he came to Pacifica station WBAI and spoke with producer Bernard White.

Tape:

Wilfred Little, was the eldest brother of Malcolm X. He died yesterday in Detroit.
