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.

Today is the 37th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, one of the greatest this country saw in the last century. He was shot to death as he spoke before a packed audience in Harlem’s Audubon Ballroom on February 21, 1965. He was just 39 years old. We air videotaped speech that he delivered one week before he was assassinated. It is called "The Last Message."
