The classic collection of major speeches, now bundled with an audio download of Malcolm X delivering two of them.
Malcolm X remains a touchstone figure for black America and in American culture at large. He gave African Americans not only their consciousness but their history, dignity, and a new pride. No single individual can claim 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 End of White World Supremacy contains four major speeches by Malcolm X, including: "Black Man's History," "The Black Revolution," "The Old Negro and the New Negro," and the famous "The Chickens Are Coming Home to Roost" speech ("God's Judgment of White America"), delivered after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. This new edition bundles with the book an audio download of Malcolm's stirring delivery of "Black Man's History" in Harlem's Mosque No.7 and "The Black Revolution" in the Abyssinian Baptist Church.
Imam Benjamin Karim was a close associate and collaborator of Malcolm from 1957 until Malcolm's death. As Benjamin 2X, he was an assistant minister of Temple No.7 in Harlem for four years. It was Imam Benjamin Karim who "opened up" for Malcolm when he was killed by assassin's bullets in February 1965. Imam Karim lived in Richmond, Virginia, until his death in 2005. Malcolm X was an important, polarizing figure of the Civil Rights Movement. Born in 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska, he became a key force in bringing America's racial issues to the government's attention. He was assassinated in 1965 in New York City.
