Malcolm X endures as one of America’s harshest and most insightful critics. As the fiery spokesperson for the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X described in eloquent terms, the plight of African-American at the hands of white racism. Later, as head of the OAAU he called for the United States to be tried for human rights violations in front of the United Nations. He was considered a dangerous man by the government and political observers and was watched closely until his assasination at an OAAU Rally in Harlem on February 21st, 1965. He was 40 years old at that time.
