"Any kind of movement for freedom of Black people based solely within the confines of America is absolutely doomed to fail."
Speeches and interviews from the last two years of Malcolm X's life.

A "Great" snapshot in history of black leadership, consciousness, and intelligence.
Malcolm X was truly a "Lion" among all men, who loved truth and justice, "by any means necessary."
I can certainly see why many white Americans feared the rhetoric of brother Malcolm. I don't think his history was accurate on many points, and neither was what was generally understood about our own past correct either. You can see some moderation in his speech. The audio version of this collection lacks any attribution of time or place. Sometimes you can infer from information provided in the speech itself. His post Haj period was so short that I've always been curious to see where that fertile mind might have taken him.
Good to hear Malik give several speeches, but being out of order hurts understanding his growth and power.
great to hear the legend and prophet Malcolm x, it's crazy to know some of the things he was talking about today like the bias press, police brutality, systematic white supremacy, are still things we have to deal with today (50+ years later), even with a half-black president! !!
Listen with an open mind or don't listen at all. But if you choose not to listen, you'll miss a vital link in American History that has been forgotten or unfairly discredited.
I looked this book of speeches. Hearing his words from his mouth was great. You could hear his transformation. The only negative was sometimes the segments didn't flow. Hopefully I will be able to hear more from and about Malcolm in the very near future.
