"The EXPLOSIVE and GRIPPING documentary that shows never before seen 
footage of al-Hajj Malik Shabazz, a truly Islamic hero. Malcolm took the 
name al-Hajj Malik Shabazz in 1964.

Malcolm courageously stood firm in the midst of his enemies ...
In 'Prince of Islam' we learn about his childhood struggles through to 
him joining the 'Nation of Islam' to him finally accepting the true 
religion of Islam after performing the Hajj in Makkah."

When asked if he would accept outer help from the Communists:
"/Let me tell you a little story. It's like being in a wolf's den. The 
wolf sees someone on the outside who is interested in freeing me from 
the den. The wolf doesn't like that person on the outside. But I don't 
care who opens the door and lets me out/."

"Then your answer is yes?"
"/No, I'm talking about a wolf/."

"/My thinking had been opened up wide in Mecca. I've written to friends: 
'I've had enough of someone else's propaganda. I am for truth, no matter 
who tells it. I am for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I am 
a human being first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and 
whatever benefits humanity as a whole.' The American white man's press 
called me the angriest Negro in America. I wouldn't deny that charge; I 
spoke exactly as I felt. I believe in anger. I believe it is a crime for 
anyone who is being brutalized to continue to accept that brutality 
without doing something to defend himself./"

from their country; how can anyone require the people of Palestine to 
accept a punishment which nobody else would tolerate?/" ~Bertrand Russell
