On Feb. 21 1965, black activist leader Malcolm X, El Hajj Malik El-Shabaaz, was gunned down at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City. Almost a year prior on April 3, 1964, following his split with Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam, he gave what is arguably one of his most famous speeches that has become known as "The Ballot or the Bullet." In it he espouses his vision on black nationalism, religion, American politics, racial equality, the Civil Rights Movement, the anti-colonialist struggle and more.
