really liked it

My favorite bit so far (which actually appears quite early in the book) is a quote from the opening sentence of one of Malcom X's speach:

Mr. Moderator, Brother Lomax, brothers and sisters, friends and enemies: I just can't believe everyone in here is a friend and I don't want to leave anybody out.

In his speeches, Malcom X strikes a blend of outright revolt and openness to the other party, in hope of a peaceful resolution. Not an easy combo.

Also a good read: "Most of you have no idea what Martin Luther King actually did" by HamdenRice
