debate between CORE field secretary Evie Rich and Malcolm X

Subject

Evie Rich, Malcolm X

Description

This is a 1961 debate between CORE field secretary Evie Rich and Malcolm X on Philadelphia's WCAU radio. It is the classic integrationist vs. nationalist debate.

While Evie Rich did a good job in representing the CORE position, Malcolm X beat up on her pretty bad especially once he found out she had a White husband, Marv Rich, who was the second in command of CORE. In his debates with James Farmer and Bayard Rustin, he was no where near as disrespectful. One has to wonder if part of the animus he had towards her was in part because she was a woman.
