I.F. Stone's 1965 Review of the Autobiography of Malcolm X

There are few places on earth where whites have not grown rich robbing the colored races. It was Malcolm’s great contribution to help make us all aware of this.
His assassination was a loss to the country as well as to his race. These two books will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle.

I.F. Stone (1907–1989) was an American journalist and publisher whose self-published newsletter, I.F. Stone’s Weekly, challenged the conservatism of American journalism in the midcentury. A Noncomformist History of Our Times (1989) is a six-volume anthology of Stone’s writings.
