Some of the clips included in the following slide presentation on Malcolm X still have the power the strike a chord that evokes the pity and fear of Aristotelian tragedy. You will find clips below of some of his most stirring speeches and interviews as well as scenes from Spike Lee's movie about the charismatic black leader. Cornel West weighs in, and there is the moving "A Change Is Gonna Come" montage (featuring Sam Cooke's never-equaled rendition) from the end of Lee's film. The birthday anniversary of Malcolm X is a time for reflection on our uniquely American situation - where we've been as a nation, how far we've come, and how much further there is yet to go.
