Malcolm X interviewed by Alex Haley
This interview for Playboy in May 1963 caught Malcolm X at the pinnacle of his most combative black nationalist phase and America in the grip of racial turmoil. The interview took place over several days and after delivering a particularly fierce diatribe against whites or Christians, he sometimes almost dares interviewer Alex Haley to censor him. "You know the devil's not going to print that!" he said.
