FROZEN ICE SHAPE X. ONCE A REPLICA USED FOR A MAN NO LONGER WHITH US.

In the 90’s I started doing media Press and while on an assignments in 1992 for the Spike Lee’s Malcolm X premiere at the Apollo Theater, in Harlem N Y.

X carved in Frozen Ice
While on assignment in 1992 at Apollo Theater.

I took this picture of the frozen X (carved out of Ice) in the lobby. The backdrop of some of the entertainers who performed there added to the history of the Apollo Theater for me to capture something so unique. This image became a time capsule for me. I don’t imagine any one else captured it (if at all) the way I did.

Denzel Washington portraying Malcolm X in the off Broadway play, “When the Chickens Come Home to Roost”. During that period in time, the then up and coming director, Spike Lee got together with Denzel to began work on his long-awaited dream project, Malcolm X. This film was shot at various points across the globe of which portrayed what Malcolm X life was about and shown to thousands who admired him while he was alive and thousands more after his assignation.

Malcolm X Daughter, IIyasah Shabazz continues to represent what her father stood for in his absence. You can meet her at http://www.ilyasahshabazz.com/ and read information that (I hope) will restore your faith about the world as we know it today.
Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X came from two different backgrounds but lectured about the same ideologies that oppresses people of color. Because of that they both were assassinated. That is how Black people are dealt with especially when you can fundamentally bring large groups of Black people together for a common goal. However, as I right about this, the violence that exist today is nothing short of how thing has been since greed took over the earth, and the enslavement of people to benefited the wealthy.

The photo of the Ice carved “X” shown here has been in my possession since 1992. I have not shown or published it. The Ice relict has melted but the image still remains. It is now being published on Word Press perhaps because no one knows it exist. Not even Spike Lee, Denzel Washington or IIyasah Shabazz.

I’m now retired and pursuing my long time hobby of photography. The Word Press Community has become a place I didn't know existed. Looking forward to sharing my blog images and content. The content can be out there, but it gets better every time.
