10% of the proceeds from each Malcolm X Sauce Strap will be donated to Hogan's Alley Society.
The Malcolm X Sauce Strap is the simplest yet bold chain to date. Using a heavy, gun metal silver chain, these chains are perfect for men who don't want the sparkle. Simple, Bold, and Strong are the three words that come to mind when holding this chain. They will easily go with everything in your closet so they are the perfect addition to your accessory collection. All Sauce Straps are now equipped with clasps to unhook from the rubber loops. This allows you to easily change straps, take your straps off without having to remove the loops, or to replace loops if they break. One extra loop is included with each purchase.
Malcolm X (May 19, 1925 to February 21, 1965) was a minister, human rights activist and prominent black nationalist leader who served as a spokesman for the Nation of Islam during the 1950s and 1960s. Due largely to his efforts, the Nation of Islam grew from a mere 400 members at the time he was released from prison in 1952 to 40,000 members by 1960. Articulate, passionate and a naturally gifted and inspirational orator, Malcolm X exhorted blacks to cast off the shackles of racism "by any means necessary," including violence. The fiery civil rights leader broke with the group shortly before his assassination on February 21, 1965, at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, where he had been preparing to deliver a speech.
