Synopsis

A collection from four major speeches by Malcolm X that Julius Lester called in The New York Times Book Review"The best examples in print of why even dead Malcolm is a man to measure one's self against." Malcolm X gave Black Americans not only their consciousness but their history their dignity and a new pride. No single individual can claim a more important responsibility for a sociological and historical leap forward such as the one sparked in America in the sixties. When in 1965 Malcolm X was gunned down on the stage of a Harlem theater America lost one of its eminent political thinkers.The book portion of The End of White Supremacycontains four major speeches by Malcolm X including the famous Chickens Come Home to Roost speech. Together these four speeches cast new light on a man who ranks among the great leaders and teachers of his time. Also included in the package are two audio cassettes. Here in almost two hours of recorded material is the stirring voice of Malcolm X himself in two parallel but very different speeches one delivered in Harlems Mosque No. 7 the second at Adam Clayton Powells Abyssinian Baptist Church. These speeches were not broadcast but were recorded on Malcolms instructions by one of his most trusted and faithful lieutenants then Benjamin 2X now Benjamin Karim. Black Mans History shows Malcolm as minister and teacher providing his Muslim audience with the cultural roots and lore he knew African-Americans needed in order to recover their pride and dignity. The Black Revolution is a ringing call for black separatism a passionate prophecy of judgment on white supremacy (Booklist).To hear Malcolms words in his own voice is to understand why the New York Timesnot only called him a political leader and social analyst but likened him to an Old Testament prophet.
