Malcolm X In Color

Malcolm Little. Malcolm X. El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. A study of self-transformation, critical engagement and transcendence. Nuff said.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes :

“A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything.”

“My alma mater was books, a good library… I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.”

“There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance next time.”

“If you’re not ready to die for it, put the word ‘freedom’ out of your vocabulary.”

“I am not a racist. I am against every form of racism and segregation, every form of discrimination. I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color.”

“You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.”

“If you have no critics you’ll likely have no success.”

“In all our deeds, the proper value and respect for time determines success or failure. “

“Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you’re a man, you take it”

“You’re not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it. “

Speeches and Interviews (the Oxford University speech is simply brilliant):
