                     Extension Activities:
Station #1:
In July of 1964 Malcolm X attended the second meeting of the Organization of
African Unity. He presented a petition asking
      “In the interest of world peace, we beseech the heads of the independent
      African states to recommend an immediate investigation into our problem by
      the United Nations Commission on Human Rights.”

According to UN procedures, a nation can request a human rights
investigation of another country on behalf of the people whose rights have
been violated. The African heads of state discussed the proposition at the
OAU summit but failed to bring the case before the UN.

   1. Review the UDHR.

   2. Identify possible violations of articles.
