Malcolm X was killed 40 years ago.
On the February 20, 2005 edition of Like It Is hosted by the venerable Gil Noble, the life of Malcolm X was presented in a factual, non-emotional and intellectual manner. Malcolm X’s words proved him a man of insight and substance.
Malcolm X’s involvement with the Black Muslims and the Nation of Islam was difficult for many on different levels.
The most interesting idea brought to bear during the one hour television presentation was the idea that those who were responsible for Malcolm X’s death “could not find the courage or the heart to rise up and strike the KKK or the White Citizens’ Council but they could find the heart to murder Malcolm X.”
