- 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.
