It was yesterday in 1965 that Black nationalist, Human rights leader, and orator Malcolm X was gunned down well giving a speech in Harlem New York. He was controversial and some claim a black racist. Others claim he was a voice of Justice. Some of his rhetoric and calls to action were jarring to many, however there are times when the emotion and the call for justice denied to so many for so long must be amplified.

Here is a clip of an old interview with Malcolm X.

The book “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” by Alex Haley and dictated by Malcolm X himself was published in 1965 around the time of Malcolm X’s tragic and violent death. In my opinion it is one of the most interesting books I have ever read.
