Wallace would count the Nation of Islam leader as a friend thereafter. His interview gave one of the first mainstream glimpses into Malcolm X's beliefs and the concept of "invisible movements" occurring nationwide during a time of high civil unrest.

If you recall, one of the most famous Negro leaders in 1959 was asked by you about the Black Muslim Movement, and he said he knew nothing about it..."
