Read full description of the books:
Considering the limited number of work by Brother Malcolm, this collection is invaluable. After leaving the Nation of Islam, not much is made of Malcolm's time between leaving, his hajj to Mecca, and his assassination; "Malcolm X Speaks" covers Malcolm's philosophical and political maturation as documented in press conferences, speeches, lectures, interviews, etc. From his early stages as a Black Nationalist to full on militant socialist, this collection gives an unprecedented insight into the mind of the greatest black American radical since Marcus Garvey.

Read information about the authorMalcolm X (born Malcolm Little), also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, was an American Black Muslim minister and a spokesman for the Nation of Islam.
After leaving the Nation of Islam in 1964, he made the pilgrimage, the Hajj, to Mecca and became a Sunni Muslim. He also founded the Muslim Mosque, Inc. and the Organization of Afro-American Unity. Less than a year later, he was assassinated in Washington Heights on the first day of National Brotherhood Week.
Historian Robin D.G. Kelley wrote, "Malcolm X has been called many things: Pan-Africanist, father of Black Power, religious fanatic, closet conservative, incipient socialist, and a menace to society. The meaning of his public life — his politics and ideology — is contested in part because his entire body of work consists of a few dozen speeches and a collaborative autobiography whose veracity is challenged. Malcolm has become a sort of tabula rasa, or blank slate, on which people of different positions can write their own interpretations of his politics and legacy.
