Malcolm X early on developed two explicit commitments that largely defined his public life:
(1) While in jail he decided to commit himself to telling the white man to the white man's face what the white man is really like.
(2) Out of jail while recruiting for the temple he started telling his black brothers that for too long the black man was paralyzed by fear of the white man and to urge them to find the greater dignity and humanity to defend themselves.
