Malcolm X’s visits to Mecca and West Africa in April-May of 1964 helped broaden his global scope a bit more since departing from the Nation of Islam earlier that March. Later, during the summer, he internationalized the plight of Africans in America on a legal level when he presented his case at the Organization of African Unity’s second meeting, held in Cairo, Egypt, July 17-21, 1964.
