Recently we stumbled across a couple of unmarked reels that turned out to contain Malcolm X speeches and interviews! Ranging from his time as a Minister in the Nation of Islam to a couple months before his death in February 1965, these reels offered a wonderful opportunity to hear Malcolm at different points in his political development. We chose these clips because of how directly and concisely he links African liberation and colonialism with racism and the liberation of African-Americans in the United States. Check out our entire Malcolm X collection here.
