A PLAYBOY CLASSIC: ALEX HALEY INTERVIEWS MALCOLM X
On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was gunned down in the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem. One witness to the hail of gunfire that killed him was his then four-year old daughter, Qubilah Shabazz, who has now, at age 34, been implicated in a plot to kill her fathers bitter rival, Louis Farrakhan. In light of the continuing controversy over Malcolm Xs death, and life, we now offer visitors to the PLAYBOY WEB SITE the opportunity to read the great spiritual and political leaders own account of his beliefs, as recounted in a May 1963 PLAYBOY INTERVIEW. The questioner was the late Alex Haley, who would go on to co-author The Autobiography of Malcolm X before completing his own masterpiece of African-American literature, ROOTS.
"I dont know when Armageddon
is supposed to be. But I know that the time is near when the white man
will be finished. The signs are all around us."
"Verwoerd is an honest white man. So are the Barnetts, Eastlands and Rockwells. They want to keep white people white; we want to keep black people black."
Within the past five years, the militant American Negro
has become an increasingly active combatant in the struggle for civil
rights. Espousing the goals of unqualified equality and integration,
many of these outspoken insurgents have participated in freedom rides
and protest marches against their segregationist foes. Today, they face
opposition from not one, but two inimical exponents of racism and segregation:
the white supremacists and the Black Muslims. A relatively unknown and
insignificant radical religious Negro cult until a few years ago, the
Muslims have grown into a dedicated, disciplined nationwide movement
which runs its own school, publishes its own newspaper, owns stores
and restaurants in four major cities, buys broadcast time on 50 radio
stations throughout the country, stages mass rallies attended by partisan
crowds of 10,000 and more, and maintains its own police force of judo-trained
athletes called the Fruit of Islam.
