By Any Means Necessary (Poster/Postcard)

USA, 1892

Famous poster of Malcolm X with a gun. Above it reads 'Liberate Our Minds' and below 'By Any Means Necessary' "We want freedom by any means necessary. We want justice by nay means necessary. We want equality by any means necessary." "The thing that I would like to impress upon every Afro-American leader is that no kind of action in this country is ever going to bear fruit unless that action is tied in with the overall international struggle" Through these speeches from the last year of his life, Malcolm X takes his place as one of the twentieth century's out standing revolutionary thinkers and leaders Malcolm sought, as he put it, to "internationalize" the fight against racism. He condemned Washington's war in Vietnam, solidarized with the African freedom struggle, and championed the revolutionary victories of the Chinese and Cuban people.
