Transcript

  • 1. MALCOLM X By Natasha, Alysia and Chenel 
  • 2. SIGNIFICANCE
    • He was an African-American Muslim minister, public speaker, and human rights activist
    • To his admirers, he was a courageous advocate for the rights of African Americans, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans.
    • His opponents accused him of preaching racism, black supremacy, anti-Semitism, and violence.
    • He has been described as one of the greatest and most influential African Americans in history
  • 3. WHAT HE DID…
    • PRESENTATIONS:-
    • Malcolm X spoke before a wide variety of audiences.
    • He spoke at regular meetings of Muslim Mosque, and at the Organization of Afro-American Unity.
    • He was one of the most sought-after speakers on college campuses.
    • He also spoke before political groups such as the Militant Labour Forum.
  • 4. WHAT HE DID…
    • RHETORIC
    • He cleverly replaced his last name with the letter ‘X’, part of a rhetorical strategy.
    • Malcolm X urged all African-Americans to reject their last names, which were those of slave-owners, replacing them with "X" to stand for the lost African names of their ancestors.
  • 5. WHAT HE DID…
    • During most of his career Malcolm X gave whites no break.
    • He demanded separation from whites.
    • However toward the end of his life, he seemed more accepting of some whites, but still his evolving vision was not entirely clear.
  • 6. LINKS TO OTHER LEADERS
    • His thinking, his style and his impact derive from Marcus Garvey’s ideas.
    • He was around alongside the likes of Martin Luther King.
    • He was more favoured by the militant activists and those more peaceful tended to oppose his methods.
    • Like Martin Luther King, Malcolm X was also assassinated.
