On Feb. 21, 1965, the former Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X was assasinated. He was 39.
Brown University senior Malcolm Burnley recently found a recording from a speech Malcom X made at the University on May 11, 1961. NPR broadcasted the parts of the speech for the first time earlier this month.
The recording is “an early window into Malcolm X’s evolving views,” NPR’s Guy Raz said about the recording.
