In a rare interview with WNYC, Malcolm X discusses the Nation of Islam and the teachings of Elijah Muhammad as a foundation of his activism:
Well, I don’t know whether you would call it the antithesis. We’re primarily interested in solving the problem of 20 million black people. And if integration is going to solve the problem tomorrow, then let’s integrate. But since the Supreme Court issued its desegregation decision seven years ago, and you only have about six or seven percent integration now, on an e — on an educational level, that means that the black man trying to use integration as a means of solving his problem will be another 100 years just getting integration on an educational level.
You can learn more about Malcolm X by listening to his speeches and interviews on Tidal or YouTube and reading his autobiography.
