This volume brings together an excellent selection from Malcolm X's last year and a quarter of life—a critical period to examine in order to understand the development of his global vision, appreciate the power of his framing of racism and economic oppression, and realize even more clearly why he posed such a threat to the status quo.

From the publisher: “Malcolm X Speaks contains the major speeches of one of the most important leaders of the black revolution, who was also one of the great orators of our time. 'All but one of the speeches were made in those last eight months of his life after his break with the Black Muslims when he was seeking a new path. In their pages one can begin to understand his power as a speaker and to see the political legacy he left his people in its struggle for emancipation. Over and over again in simple imagery, savagely uncompromising, he drove home the real truth.' —I.F. Stone, The New York Review of Books”
