Behind today's door - Malcolm X, one day late for his 93rd birthday.
Revise Malcolm X and his role in Civil Rights
List his role within the Nation of Islam, some of his early preaching, differences and similarities of the teaching of King, and how his hajj in 1964 led to the Organization for Afro-American Unity. He was assassinated in 1965.
I don't speak against the sincere, well-meaning, good white people. I have learned that there are some. I have learned that not all white people are racists. I am speaking against and my fight is against the white racists. I believe that Negroes have the right to fight against these racists, by any means that are necessary. I am for violence if non-violence means we continue postponing a solution to the American black man's problem - just to avoid violence. I don't go for non-violence if it also means a delayed solution. To me a delayed solution is a non-solution. Or I'll say it another way. If it must take violence to get the black man his human rights in this country, I'm for violence exactly as you know the Irish, the Poles, or Jews would be if they were flagrantly discriminated against.Malcolm X, speaking in 1964.
