Photograph was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated May 21, 1962 partially reads, "Black Muslim leader Malcolm X denounced Mayor Samuel W. Yorty as a 'professional liar' Sunday in Los Angeles and called on a cheering Negro crowd to 'come together against the common enemy.' Flanked by the well-dressed, grim-faced suspects of the April 27 Muslim-police clash, Mr. X said: 'Remember all of us are black. It's not a Muslim fight - it's a black man's fight. We're all catching hell from the same white men and we must get them off our back.'" Photograph was taken at Park Manor Auditorium, 607 S. Western Ave., Los Angeles.; See image #00127769 for additional photo in this series.
