February 21 1965: Assassination of Malcolm X and the publication of The Free Speech Movement and the Negro Revolution.

  • What is the importance of the speech “The Message to the Grass Roots” today?
  • Why does Malcolm X say that all revolutions are based on the struggle for land?
  • Why does Malcolm X say that all revolutions require bloodshed?
  • Why was Malcolm X so critical of the mainline civil rights leaders?
  • Should the same criticism be made against civil rights leaders today?

Using “The Free Speech Movement and the Negro Revolution” (available from News and Letters) and “The Message to the Grass Roots” we will study the ties between the student movement of the 1960s and the Black Revolution.
