Incidentally, when you were mentioning authors here who had either
not gone on to college or had a slight college, and, of course, I had
the impression reading your reissued book here, KING, MALCOLM, BALDWIN,
that when you were interviewing Malcolm, you were somewhat surprised
or even startled by it, when you learned that he had only gone through
Yes. By the way, he respected education very much too. I'd
invite him to my classes, and he loved to come.
Had you never heard anything about his education before you did
that interview and published it and broadcast it in 1963?
I think I'd heard something about it.
You knew he wasn't formally highly educated?
But perhaps you thought he was a little further along?
Most of his education took place in prison.
