Title:Sonia Sanchez : the meaning of Malcolm X

Instructional Web page recommended for grades nine through twelve featuring a video clip and a transcript of an "Eyes on the Prize" interview with African American poet and Black Arts Movement figure, Sonia Sanchez on Malcolm X's influence. In this video segment, Sonia Sanchez describes the impact Malcolm X had on African Americans during the Civil Rights movement. Although his ideas sparked controversy and were divisive even among the black community, Malcolm X attracted people like Sanchez because he embodied racial pride and challenged African Americans to confront their history.

Major funding for this project is provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Institute.

Grade range: 9-12.

A transcript of the Quicktime movie is available.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
