Malcolm on Medina

The results of some archive digging, aka the sharing the fruits of my PhD grind labor: 

"Never have I felt more relaxed, more at peace, or nearer to God than here today at Medina. This feeling that I have right now is in itself worth my entire pilgrimage. I haven't really felt like this since 'my prison years' when I would spend days upon days in solitude, hrs. upon hrs. studying and praying. There is no greater serenity of mind than when one can shut the hectic noise & pace of the materialistic outside world, & seek inner peace within one's self."

 -Malcolm X, April 25, 1964
