'Words From The Frontlines' contains excerpts from some of Malcolm X's most stirring speeches, not complete speeches.

Remastered at BMG studios, NYC, October 1992.

Though not shown on the label, there is a ninth, untitled track that goes:

"It's just like when you got some coffee that's too black, which mean's it's too strong. What you do, you integrate it with cream... (Laughter) make it weak... If you pour out too much cream in you won't even know you had coffee... (Laughter) ...It used to be hot it becomes cool, it used to be strong it becomes weak. It used to wake you up, now... it'll put you to sleep... (Laughter)"
