Interview on City Desk
You do not need to answer all of the questions. Pick three or four questions to answer. 1. How did the different locations throughout Malcolm’s childhood influence his decisions thus far in the book? Where are the different places that Malcolm lived before moving to Harlem? Why are these different locations important to the development of his racial politics?
2. What role did Garveyism play in Malcolm’s life? Do you think this had a direct impact on his political views later in life? Do you think Garveyism played a significant role in his decision to move to Harlem?
3. What do we learn about Lansing and Harlem from Malcolm’s autobiography? From what we’ve discussed in class do you think Malcolm’s experiences were similar to other African Americans during the same time period?
4. How may have Malcolm X’s personality, career, or impact on history turned out differently if certain key events in his life (or certain key decisions he made) had not happened? What key events were happening in the world that had an impact on Malcolm’s personal and political development?
5. What’s in a Name? According to the article on Black Power and the history of the movement, do you think the term used to define people of color had an impact on the political strategies used during the period? (Negro, Afro-American, African-American, Black, etc) 6. Now think in regards to Malcolm’s various names in the book. What are the different names he used or was given by his community? Why does the alias’ he is given in Harlem become important to his survival? How did the various names define his experiences during the respective time period?
