Today is the 37th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X. The leader–one of the greatest this country saw in the last century–was shot to death as he spoke before a packed audience in Harlem’s Audubon Ballroom. He was just 39 years old.
In honor of Malcolm X’s memory, we turn now to a videotaped speech he delivered one week before he was assassinated.It is called "The Last Message."
