Student Finds ‘Lost Malcolm X Speech’ Thanks to Old Campus Newspaper

Yesterday, Politico posted an Associated Press story providing a powerful reminder about the treasures that exist within old campus newspapers.  A student at Brown University recently stumbled across a reference to a little-known Malcolm X speech in an issue of a Brown campus paper published in 1961.

After some subsequent digging in university archives, he came across the recording.  According to the student, “No one had listened to this in 50 years.  There aren’t many recordings of him before 1962.  And this is a unique speech– it’s not like others he had given before.”
