WMAQ-TV - Malcolm X interview on City Desk - 03/17/63

Continuing with the Black History month audio clips... This audio clip comes from Chicago television, not radio. It is the audio of a very special interview with Malcolm X, the civil rights advocate. In this March 1963 interview, Malcolm X appeared on WMAQ-TV's "City Desk" and was interviewed (some could say "grilled") by famed Chicago NBC newsmen Jim Hurlbut, Floyd Kalber, Len O'Connor, and Charles McCuen. It is a very interesting look back at the attitudes on both sides of the early 1960's racial divide. (Running time: 27:39)
