A massive amount of content but poorly presented.

A very large amount of original recordings of speeches and interviews with Malcolm X.
That’s the positive.

However, the material is a mixed bag of good and bad quality recordings, repetition, some material that’s not even relevant, but worst of all it’s all mixed up and in no useful order.
This is problematic when there is such a massive difference in Malcolm X’s speech from his Nation days to when he travelled to Makkah, performed Hajj and became a real Muslim.

You will have speeches where it’s the Hon Elijah says so and so, then next lecture you’ll have Malcolm speaking for himself as a progressive, non-racist, about organising on an international level, then another part it’s right back to Elijah says so and so. This could be very confusing for someone not familiar with Malcolm’s life and his journey. Do I do not recommend this collection for anyone who is unfamiliar with Malcolm X.

There’s already so much confusion and misinformation in the general public about who Malcolm was, what he stood for. Presenting a large body of material like this in such an chaotic manner helps no one.

Malcolm X Became a Great Thinker!

Elijah Muhammad was both progressive and regressive. His fabricated Islam simply inverted White racism and reflected it back. This is why the Nation of Islam received funding from the American Neo-Nazi Movement. Malcolm X eventually discovered the Internationalism of genuine Islam and threw off the corrupting influence of the racist Nation of Islam! The speeches should reflect the chronology of his personal evolution but do not. They are randomly presented in no particular order. Even so, there is a quality about Malcolm X that transcends the content. The discerning listener will intuitively understand that despite the words used, Malcolm X is communicating a greater and more profound truth that cannot be limited to the context of the speeches.

Deep dive into one of America’s greatest minds.

If it were up to me this book would be required reading for every high school student. It’s moving informative and an interesting take on the state of US politics in the 50’s.

A distorted version of Malcolm

As much as I loved listening to hours of Malcolm X, this was highly repetitive and basically Nation of Islam propaganda. Even includes speeches by Farraķhan and Elijah Muhammad, both implicated in Malcolm's assasination. Misses out key speeches and ideas. A real shame that after 17 hours you don't get to the real X

Confused and disappointed by this book

Was confused to hear Farrakhan and scenes from the MOVIE Malcolm X. I wanna hear Malcolm. THE REAL MALCOLM! Not a projection of him or hear anyone else’s speeches! Very disappointing. Who thought this was a good idea? False advertising and upsetting.

The Book’s Title Is Inaccurate

This book is a collection of clips, other speakers that include Minister Louis Farrakhan, The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and even Denzel Washington from the movie Malcolm X.

The “speeches” are either incomplete or part of interviews. The speeches have not been re-mastered so at times it sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks at other times, Malcolm sounds like Lurch from The Adams Family. There is no date, time, or explanation of the “speeches”. “Speeches” also repeat. The listener will recognize repeated “speeches” throughout the work.

Personally, I felt like I was listening to various YouTube videos rather than watching them. This is what this work equates to. Finding random Malcolm X clips that can be found on the Internet.

It’s a no for me.

NOT HIS SPEECHES!!!

Do not buy. Get a refund if you can. This is clips not a collection of speeches. Some are from fictional works. GARBAGE.

Speeches, yes; Organized or labeled? No

You will get to hear Malcolm X and that gives this collection value. However, there are no labels of date, location, interviewers. etc for speeches. As other reviewers pointed out clips from movie and other speakers are included. At the end of chapter 1 is some random few seconds of a clip. At minimum, the chapters could have been labeled with the speech date and location.

What a waste...

Waste of credit...
Waste of money...

What can I say that hasn’t already been covered by other reviewers. Shame on me for not reading the reviews.

Not professional

A very poor attempt to collect Malcolm X's speeches. Also, there are speeches included that don't belong Malcolm X.

Not as advertised

As other review noted, this is NOT a collection of Malcolm X speeches, and items are not narrated by Malcolm X. Would more accurately be titled “a smattering of speech fragments by black leaders in the 20th century, leaning towards Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam”

Who Put This Together??

I LOVE listening to Malcolm X speak, but WHY have I been listening to Louis Farrakhan for almost an hour? It's disheartening to know that whoever put this collection together doesn't know the difference between X and Farrakhan.......
