Read full description of the books:
Along with his 'Autobiography' and any regular bio, (though I recommend Marable's) if you have any interest in Malcolm X, reading his actual speeches is a must. This particular speech comes from the month prior to his assassination and was geared (as the title indicates) towards a group of visting teens/young adults at the Hotel Theresa. It's fairly short, but gives a great overview of where Malcolm's head was at the time. Far from the popular image of the white-hating militant but still a revolutionary. It speaks in a lot of ways to the transition Malcolm made after he visited Africa and delved into what true Islam is. One wonders where he would have gone if not for the assassination. A brilliant mind and one that unfortunately the public at large has been brainwashed into believing was a militant white hater to the end. His transtition throughiout his life is something that should be held up for young people to study right next to MLK Jr. I personally find his speeches powerful, cohesive and most of all, true to the time. They never feel overly rehearsed. This is no different. The pamphlet includes a brief interview with some Socialist leaning folks as well. If you find this at a library or for a fairly cheap price, I recommend it.

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.
