Two pages of typed notes from an interview with Playboy Magazine, with annotations in ink, and signed by Malcolm X

Malcolm X





2 typed sheets. Header reads Haley (probably refers to author Alex Haley who conducted the interview). Both sheets with some holograph annotations in ink, and signed at the bottom, Malcolm X. Also included in the lot is the original May, 1963 Playboy Magazine, in its original color illustrated wrappers.

Each sheet signed by Malcolm X at the bottom, signing off on some additions to the interview text typed here. These pages appeared in the article titled "Playboy Interview: Malcolm X. A Candid Conversation with the Militant Major-Domo of the Black Muslims," which appeared on pp. 53-63 in the May, 1963 Playboy. The two typed pages here are the parts of the interview that dealt with American Presidents, "None of them have ever done anything for Negroes," and with being Muslim. Complete with letters of authenticity.
