Malcolm X on the Civil Rights Bill
African-American Muslim minister and human rights activist Malcolm X was in the visitor’s gallery when the Senate voted 67-17 to formally take up the civil rights bill. Questioned by reporters afterward, he remarks that the proceedings seemed to him to be "just some more political chicanery." He corrects one reporter, "It’s not 'the Negro cause' when you try to bring about independence for all people in this country. Any thinking person is working for the so-called American cause. You’re not working for my cause when you try and practice what you preach."
