Malcolm X and the Struggle for Black Liberation

Program #SALW001. Recorded in New York, NY on October 17, 1995.

Audio sample:

Malcolm X is one of the towering figures in the struggle for black liberation. He has been identified as an articulator of the rage of black youth and a symbol of pride and defiance. But he was much more than that. Malcolm X was a major thinker and theoretician of black liberation. In the year before his assassination in February 1965, he underwent enormous intellectual growth and transformation. He moved from being a narrow nationalist to embrace a much more global perspective.

Recorded at the Brecht Forum.
