Malcolm X Promises U.S. A Long, Bloody Summer


Malcolm X Promises U.S. A Long, Bloody Summer


Published a day after Malcolm X’s Dartmouth address, “The Black Revolution in America,” this article by Christopher Langley summarizes the main points Malcolm made regarding race relations. Malcolm emphasized the international nature of the “race problem,” the importance of concentrating on areas of accord between U.S. freedom movements, the influence of African nationalism in strengthening the Black revolution in America, and the role of biased press and “a racist government in Washington” in the failure to resolve Civil Rights issues.
