Very well put together documentary on Malcolm X. Covers many things about his life, and includes clips from many speeches. I can just say, from a personal note, that Malcolm X has been a role model of mine since Ive been about 14 or so, and although there are many things he said to which I disagree with, his views were anti-United States government at its core, and for that he is to be commended.
This video also talks about the many unanswered questions regarding Malcolm Xs death, on February 21st, 1965. Witnesses claim that there were up to 5 men involved, and the FBI file on Malcolm X also indicate this fact, but only 3 were arrested and charged. Im not a conspiracy theorist by any stretch of the imagination, but I do think evidence exists that Norman 3X Butler and Thomas 15X Johnson were not involved in the murder, as Talmadge Hayer (Thomas Hagen) testified in court, and even in 1977 and 1978, submitted two sworn affidavits implying that he, and four other Muslims from the Newark Temple 25 killed Malcolm. He said that Wilbur McKinley was the one who shouted and threw the smoke bomb, William Bradley hit Malcolm with the Shotgun, Leon David and himself then shot Malcolm with a pistol, Benjamin Thomas was also involved. In 1980, many people tried to get FBI Director William H. Webster to reopen the case, such as Congressman William Hughes, but they didnt.
It was members of the NOI that did it, but its doubtful that the orders came from Elijah Muhammad. They probably came from John Ali. Buy the book by Karl Evanzz called The Judas Factor for more information about Malcolms death.
