Malcolm, Martin and Mass Media

Over the years I’ve developed versions of this presentation and have been asked for copies.  I just started messing with Prezi and put the latest version there.  These are visuals that accompany a discussion of Malcolm X and King‘s actual radical politics and the response of the state and mass media.  Here The Washington Post is used as an example of how the state and civil rights leadership all moved away from King as his politics evolved.  Enjoy, question, hate, critique…



Below is audio from a 1/29/14 presentation of Malcolm, Martin and Mass Media given at the Library of Congress’ Blacks In Government chapter.  Once the presentation begins those interested can listen while viewing this above Prezi slides and pause the audio to watch the videos whose audio is not included in the clip below.


  1. Let the truth be told. It’s just interesting to see the fear we bring with no malice intended. Just expressive thoughts for what the times really call for. Interesting how the media keeps on trying to divide us into the 21st century! Chaos or community?
