How did Malcolm X’s rhetoric change between the interview with Rustin and his break with the Nation of Islam?
Malcolm X, spokesperspn of the Nation of Islam, was against the intergration among the whites and the African Americans. During his time in prison he saw how whites were enslavinh the black americans and he stopped believing christianity, religion of the whites. Malcom strongly believed that the African Americans would achieve so much by themselves without the help of the whites. He convinced black Americans not to trust the whites. In his interview with Bayard Rustin he clearly stated that separation from the whites was the only hope the African Americans had for them to survive generations. Rustin tried to convince Malcolm that intergration among the whites n black Americans would impact both societies but Malcolm still insisted on separation.
