Malcom X Speech in 1964 - Ballot or Bullet - Lessons for Today

This speech is full of observations that are useful in 2011 the point about keeping religion a personal matter and how divisive it is if it enters politics is relevant to the unfolding North African Revolutions.

The point about the weakness of US Imperialism in ground combat in Korea and Vietnam is echoed today in Iraq and Afghanistan.

A tremendously powerful and honest speech that has a message for today.

There is a quality problem with parts of the recording but the power of the speech overcomes these technical problems.
