    Malcolm & Black Brotherhood

    In this final ep of season 2, Phil and Taelor discuss the Malcolm quote:
    "We Black men have a hard enough time in our own struggle for justice—and already have enough enemies as it is—to make a drastic mistake of attacking each other and adding more weight to an already unbearable load."

    Malcolm & Tokenism

    Malcolm & Tokenism

    In this week’s episode of Make it Plain, Phillip Holmes and Taelor Gray explore the following Malcolm X quote:
    "Then in the second semester of the second grade, I was elected class president. It surprised me even more than other people. But I can see now why the class might have done it. My grades were among the highest in the school. I was unique in my class, like a pink poodle. And I was proud. I'm not going to say I wasn't. In fact, by then, I didn't really have much feeling about being a Negro. Because I was trying so hard, in every way I could, to be white. Which is why I am spending much of my life today telling the American black man that he's wasting his time straining to integrate. I know from personal experience. I tried hard enough.”

Excellent

I appreciate the content of this podcast and how it interweaves history with contemporary cultural analysis. I also love the podcasters voices, it makes it easy to listen to.

Informative + great tone

Thank you so much for opening this conversation in the Christian community. A lot of people are wary about Malcolm because of the way he has been presented, but I really appreciate the way the hosts take his evaluations and focus them toward the church, there is still so much to learn. Their tone also does not seem to be one of arrogance or pride to me, but one of sincerely wanting to help the church grow toward Christ. This has been so informative to me as a social work major, and something that will influence my work going forward!
