    A deep festival. I have seen only a few documentaries about him - I had no idea there were so many.  Do you know the titles? I might be able to find them in the library or on Amazon or something and would like to check them out.

    Thanks for quoting the end of the autobiography.  I always think that if folks just read that book, devoid of what they think they know about Bro. Malcolm, America would get a long long way down the road of solving the problem.

    One of the things I will write about as part of this, I guess, is the logical heirs to his thinking.  Notably, some of them are white.  Indeed, in many ways non-Black peoples have been some of his staunchest advocates, post-humously of course.  I actually think that Malcolm would have found some real synergy and pleasure in that.
