12-04-05 If the slaves want their messages to be maintained clear and intact we are going to have to safeguard, outline, and log our own slave narratives. This has not been the case with brother Malcolm X. 40 years after his death his legacy and message has in part been co-opted. This did not have to happen. Yet it is the reality we face at this time. Explore this event with Slave Revolt! this hour as we tap into clips from Manning Marble on how various forces have played into this event. In a (beyond the shadow) segment called 'Co-opting Malcolm's message by "enemies" means necessary'. Then let us take the proper steps to restore Malcolm's slave narratives in his own words.
