Malcolm X’s life changed dramatically in the first six months of 1964. On March 8, he left the Nation of Islam. In May he toured West Africa and made a pilgrimage to Mecca, returning as El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. While in Ghana in May, he decided to form the Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU). Malcolm returned to New York the following month to create the OAAU and on June 28 gave his first public address on behalf of the new organization at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem.
There will be an open discussion after the Unity Rally Speech in Harlem by Malcolm X here on MOR RADIO with the 2 Great Pillars of our Community, Dr. Leonard Jeffries Jr. and Professor James Small.
