One Day When I Was Lost Excerpt

Malcolm: The Constitution gives you the right, as a white man, to have a rifle in your home. The Constitution gives you the right to protect yourself. Why is it “ominous” when black people even talk of having rifles? Why don’t we have the right to self-defense? Is it because maybe you know we’re going to have to defend ourselves against you?

– James Baldwin
A Scenario Based on Alex Haley’s “The Autobiography of Malcolm X”
