"The video and audio of this recording are so poor that it would be impossible to watch this DVD for more than a few seconds. The opening black and white video footage was poorly copied from a possibly damaged tape source, so there is a bluish tinge in a spiral pattern that creates an almost psychedelic visual effect. This caused a headache for me, and I'm convinced it would do the same for other viewers. The last recording on the film has the audio so totally out of sync with the video that it's impossible to tolerate watching it. This is most unfortunate, because the content of the speeches are worth hearing, but not through this production."

"When I received this DVD I was excited to listen to rare Malcolm X speeches, but I was a little disappointed at the use of excerpts from Jim Crow commercials and clips of "Uncle Tom" TV shows that were prevalent during this era.
I also would have liked to see more footage,
This could have been edited and produced much better, but overall I was engaged by the wit and conviction of the speeches and interviews that Malcolm gave in this DVD, However, I think a lot of speeches were missing and I was left wanting.."
