WNYC Radio Unearths a Rare Interview With Malcolm X

Sunday, February 21st is the 45th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X.

WNYC, the largest public radio station in the country, has unearthed a rare, 30-minute Malcolm X interview, from his days in the Nation of Islam, from its archives, conducted by reporter Eleanor Fischer.



In it he discusses the difference between separation and segregation, Black Muslim philosophy, and why “what Martin Luther King is doing is disarming the black people of America of their natural right.” He goes on to say: “If a man puts his arms around me voluntarily, that’s brotherhood, but if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that’s not brotherhood, that’s hypocrisy.”

It’s a fascinating snapshot of a moment in time in Malcolm’s X’s political evolution.
