    Description

    Malcolm X Clipped Signature. Cut from a letter, 7.5" x 1.25" (sight), circa 1959. Two lines of typed text read: "...no doubt Lomax would have loved nothing better than to focus on my past if not for guidelines set by Mike Wallace." Signed, "Malcolm X." Matted and framed with a large, color photograph of Malcolm X to an overall size of 16.5" x 20".

    In 1959, Louis Lomax came to Mike Wallace with information about the Nation of Islam. Wallace, host of CBS's Newsbeat, teamed up with Lomax to produce a five-part documentary named The Hate That Hate Produced, which featured an interview with Malcolm X. Due to the fact that Malcolm X refused to be interviewed by a white reporter, Lomax was tapped to conduct the interview. The first segment of the documentary ran on July 13, 1959, and introduced Malcolm X nationwide.

    Condition: A tear runs through some the text, but does not affect the signature. Light soiling, else fine.
