Chronologically sporadic

Good to hear Malik give several speeches, but being out of order hurts understanding his growth and power.

loved hearing Malcolm's speeches!

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! !!

Heavily Edited

Watered down and edited. More sound bites then speeches. The speeches after Malcolm left the Nation are the longest and clearest speeches.

Would have liked context for the speeches

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.

Impeccable

Real Story

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.

"Malcolm X," Truly A " Lion Among Men."

Excellent!

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."

Utterly Brilliant

Malcom X's speeches are still very relevant today and more is the pity. This is the history I should have learnt at school, not the kings and queens of england and not the second world war which does not define me in the least as a black person. Yes black people fought in that war but not for any reason that benefitted them.

It is a pity that the US in all its propaganda about fairness is still such an abjectly and disgracefully racist society. In the UK a black person might not be shot by the police, but regardless of talent and drive is guaranteed to go nowhere in society. The west is hypocritical and mendacious in the extreme and Malcom X's speeches should be a reminder that things must change.

Racist Propaganda for Black Power!

Chapters 1 to 23 are nothing more than racist views of black power and superiority over white people. It's quite annoyingly that the audio sample gives the misleading impression that the audio is full speech that came after Malcolm X's racist day with the nation of Islam. Please NOTE this audion is full of racist propergation which Malcolm X had denounced after leaving the nation of Islam. Hence it is aguable that Malcolm X would NOT want such racist speeches propergated after he had denounced them and changed his views!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very disturbing!
