39,346. After the victory then Cassius goes to New York. He is escorted around Harlem by the notorious Malcolm X. And the media has a field day. Speculation is hurling in Harlem that Malcolm X any day now is going to be out of the Nation of Islam. Malcolm X learns that Elijah Mohammad has impregnated several of his secretaries. And he felt deeply betrayed – he felt betrayed as a man, he felt betrayed religiously and ethically and morally by the man he had given his whole heart and trust to. And so he questioned everything including the whole creed of the Nation of Islam and the hypocrisy of it. There were two men who above all others he wanted to pull out of the Nation of Islam with him. One was Louis X, who was the minister in Boston today known as Louis Farrakhan. But the second person he wanted was Cassius Clay. (Boxing & Malcolm X & Nation of Islam) Becoming Muhammad Ali

80,153. By the early 1960s the leadership of Elijah Muhammad’s Lost Foundation had grown fat and comfortable.

80,162. I met Malcolm X once in Washington, but circumstances didn’t enable me to talk with him for more than a minute. He is very articulate ... but I totally disagree with many of his political and philosophical views – at least insofar as I understand where he now stands. I don’t want to seem to sound self-righteous, or absolutist, or that I think I have the only truth, the only way. Maybe he does have some of the answer. I don’t know how he feels now, but I know that I have often wished that he would talk less of violence, because violence is not going to solve our problem. And in his litany of articulating the despair of the Negro without offering any positive, creative alternative, I feel that Malcolm has done himself and our people a great disservice. Fiery, demagogic oratory in the black ghettos, urging Negroes to arm themselves and prepare to engage in violence, as he has done, can reap nothing but grief. Martin Luther King, interview Playboy January 1965
