Example text

Often, what sleep I got was caught in the jet planes. I was maintaining a marathon schedule of press, radio, television, and public-speaking commitments. The only way that I could keep up with my job for Mr. Muhammad was by flying with the wings that he had given me. Though Malcolm feels pleased with the way Islam is growing, he also feels frustrated by the lack of direct action: “I thought privately that we should have amended, or relaxed, our general non-engagement policy. ” Though Malcolm does not believe in integration, he is devoted to fighting for human rights for African Americans and committed to obtaining economic, educational, and political equality and justice.

Throughout Malcolm’s twelve years as a minister for Elijah, when eastern Muslims had accused him of not understanding “true Islam,” Malcolm always grew defensive: “Automatically, as a follower of Elijah Muhammad, I had bridled whenever this 51 was said. ” His deep disappointment in Elijah has created a profound spiritual crisis, prompting his journey to Mecca and a search for truth. When he lands in Cairo, Egypt, he is surprised by what he sees: Throngs of people, obviously Muslims from everywhere, bound on the pilgrimage, were hugging and embracing.

In Chapter 15, “Icarus,” Malcolm X continues to be known around the United States, speaking on radio and television and at colleges as well. At the same time, in 1963, the civil rights movement gains momentous power. As brutal images of southern white police officers using firehoses and dogs on African American children and demonstrators are broadcast across America, racial tensions increase, and many in the Nation are outraged and horrified. The assassination of NAACP field secretary Medgar Evers and the bombing of a black church in Alabama that claims the lives of four black girls in 1963 are turning points for the movement.
