Title:Malcolm X : Black Nationalism

This video segment, taken from archival news footage, explores the ideology of Malcolm X, an outspoken civil rights leader in the 1960s who advocated black nationalism and separation from white society. He argued that integration represented an adoption of white values and white culture and that, instead, African Americans needed to embrace their own culture, communities, and institutions independent of the white world.
