The Voice

February 4, 2012

This NPR story is about a recently recovered speech given by Malcolm X at Brown University in 1961. He spoke for about an hour. If you listen to the story you get to hear excerpts from the Brown event, around the 3:45 mark. The best part, however, is that you hear Malcolm X himself beginning at the 4:50 mark. His voice is amazing. But what’s most amazing to me still is how Denzel Washington reproduced him almost flawlessly in Spike Lee’s movie. – TL

  1. If Malcolm X’s words move you, I think you might like my blog, Rhymes and Reasons. It is a series of interviews with hip-hop heads who discuss their lives in the context of a few songs that matter to them. The interviews tend to focus on questions of justice like racism, sexism, sexual violence, white privilege, etc. I hope you enjoy it.
