“Malcolm X’s life changed dramatically in the first six months of 1964. On March 8, he left the Nation of Islam. In May he toured West Africa and made a pilgrimage to Mecca, returning as El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. While in Ghana in May, he decided to form the Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU). Malcolm returned to New York the following month to create the OAAU and on June 28 gave his first public address on behalf of the new organization at the Audubon Ballroom in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan. That address appears below.”

As Minister Malcolm X said multiple times in this video, he wasn’t advocating violence by African-Americans or any other Americans. His vision was about freedom for the African-American community and to accomplish that by any means necessary. What he was saying was that if an African-American is under physical attack by a Caucasian or anyone else, that African-Americans have the right to self-defense and to defense themselves when they’re under physical attack. Which is obviously very different from what Reverend Dr. Martin L. King was talking about which was nonviolence at any costs, even when African-Americans are under physical attack.
