Malcolm X at Brooklyn College
The standing room only crowd in the largest venue on campus was wary, expecting an angry, militant laden speech. But from his first words he was full of charm and humor and logic and made so much sense. He won over the crowd in an instant. I was not a political being but seeing him speak in person was an unforgettable experience.
I became a fan and his message resonated.
His assassination probably affected me more than that of Martin Luther King.
Here is a link to speeches.
