In 1964, Wallace talked with Malcolm X in his home for one of few interviews conducted shortly before the leader's assassination. 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. 


"...Negroes are banning together, in different kinds of movements, all kinds of movements," Malcolm X said. "They remain almost invisible ...When I say invisible I mean invisible in the sense that their existence is unknown and no matter how much you try and track them down, you can't find them. And never try and find them through the Negro leaders. The Negro leaders are famous as apologists. 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..."

GARY COLEMAN: Before becoming a prominent child star, playing adoptee Arnold on the hit sitcom Diff'rent Strokes, Coleman knew a thing or two about it in real life, having grown up with adopted parents since birth. He would go on to appear in many hit TV series, from Martin to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and then on to reality TV fame as a cast member on The Surreal Life 2. He even ran for governor of California in 2003, and placed 8th in a field of 185 candidates during the infamous recall election. Though he suffered from an autoimmune kidney disease that stunted his growth, and would later die from complications of it, Coleman is one of the most well-known figures in pop culture, spanning generations.
