Speeches Released On CD
A new educational CD collection of
speeches by Malcolm X has been released.
Titled The Malcolm X Collection, the CD contains fourteen hours of speeches,
debates and interviews by the fallen orator.
Every black man who speaks his mind, who speaks the truth, and doesn't care what
anyone else thinks owes a debt to Malcolm X. He was one of the first men to stand up and
say what he believed.
Malcolm X's most memorable speeches are on the CD, including "Uncle Sam Has Failed Us,"
"The Ballot or the Bullet," "The Black Revolution" and "A Message to the Grassroots."
Also included are speeches and debates from Oxford, Harvard and Berkeley.
Over half of these speeches were made during the last year of Malcolm's life, after he
left the Nation of Islam.
The philosophies of Malcolm X have influenced many including rappers KRS-1, Paris, Brand
Nubian, Ice Cube, Ghostface, Tupac Shakur, Chuck D. and others and his voice and
speeches have been sampled in numerous songs.
"Although many people see Malcolm X as a figure from the past, what impresses me the
most about his speeches is how relevant his ideas are forty years later," Atwal
continued. "All of Malcolm X's ideas about politics, religion, race and economics are as
relevant in 2004 as they were in 1964. When you hear Malcolm X speak, you realize how
little has changed since his assassination. Everything Malcolm X says is relevant today.
People have tried to demonize him, but the fact is that few intelligent people would
disagree with what Malcolm X said. You can't disagree with the truth."
In the early 90's, even clothing was inspired by the orator, in the form of T-shirts and
hats that bore the letter "X."
The Malcolm X Collection is available now through Infernal Press.
