By Any Means Necessary
Pathfinder, 1992 - African Americans - 191 pages
"We want freedom by any means necessary. We want justice by any means necessary. We want equality by any means necessary." "The thing that I would like to impress upon every Afro-American leader is that no kind of action in this country is ever going to bear fruit unless that action is tied in with the overall international struggle." Through these speeches from the last year of his life, Malcom X takes his place as one of the twentieth century's outstanding revolutionary thinkers and leaders. Malcolm sought, as he put it, to "internationalize" the fight against racism. He condemned Washington's war in Vietnam, solidarized with the African freedom struggle, and championed the revolutionary victories of the Chinese and Cuban people. Readers will follow the evolution of Malcolm's views on building political alliances, Black-white intermarriage, women's rights, capitalism and socialism, and self-defense against racist terror gangs -- all in his own words. - Back cover.
