The only thorough examination of the OAAU, a revolutionary organization founded by Malcolm X in the last year of his life and rooted in traditions of black nationalism, self-determination and human rights. Sales establishes the relevance of Malcolm's political legacy for the task of rebuilding the movement for Black liberation almost thirty years after his assassination. His research presents the best analysis of Malcolm's thinking after he left the Nation of Islam.
