Excerpt of Malcolm X's address to the Oxford Union Debate, December 3rd, 1974 as published online. Link to original publication included. Original speech is excerpted to showcase specific rhetorical choices and for length. Cuts are indicated with an elipsis.
The excerpted speech contains annotation markers and embedded questions requiring AP Lang level analysis, of the author's rhetoric, while reading the speech. These questions should be answered in the margins, which encourages annotation while reading and helps students to break down and comprehend what they are reading while also asking them to dig into the author's rhetorical choices.
