    Malcolm X Unfiltered: The Fight Against Jim Crow

    Malcolm X Unfiltered: The Fight Against Jim Crow

    The United States is more divided than ever, leading into a presidential election in nine days. Race relations have always been the center of this division. The present occupant of the White House is doing his best to stoke that division for his own narrow, selfish political satisfaction.

    These days are reminiscent of the 1960s when King, X and many other civil rights leaders were voicing their disapproval of the toxic Jim Crow laws.

    On the show today, host Garnett Ankle takes you back in time when Malcolm X was voicing his opposition of racism in the United States. Listen to Malcom X unfiltered.
