“You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.” Malcolm X

- He uses the words "NO ONE CAN" meaning it is impossible for people to have peace if there is no freedom.

- He would use his finger pointing at the word unless to make the word stronger. Cause you don’t have peace UNLESS you have freedom.

- At the beginning he is addressing his friends and enemies but he starts his quote saying YOU so he's appointing anyone that is listening to him.

- He addressed the speech “The Ballot or the Bullet.” in New York City

- Took place in April of 1964

- The cause of this speech is that Malcolm X believed that they should use Violence to fight for civil rights.

- The intended audience for the speech were "Mr. Moderator, Brother Lomax, brothers and sisters, friends and enemies"

-The reaction to the speech: African Americans used violence to stop civil rights. They started parties to take over the whites.

- This quote is important because it told African Americans to take control using violence so the whites actually learned a lesson.
