Travels with Malcolm


Written by: IRR News Team

A book on Malcolm’s X’s visits abroad has been published.

From April 1964 until his assassination in February 1965, Malcolm X travelled widely in the Middle East and across Africa and paid a number of visits to France and the UK. In a new book, drawing on data from Malcolm’s own notebooks, his autobiography, many books about him, FBI papers, local newspapers and interviews with those who met him, historian Marika Sherwood recalls all his visits, the impact he made on those who heard him speak and the influences the visits had on his political development.
