Quote of the Day

When Malcolm [X] talks, or the other Muslim ministers talk, they articulate for all the Negro people who hear them, who listen to them, they articulate their suffering.  The suffering which has been in this country so long denied.  That is Malcolm's great authority over any of his audiences.  He corroborates their reality.  He tells them that they really exist, you know.

-- James Baldwin, I Am Not Your Negro, p. 39
