Malcom X, "Confronting White Oppression", Feb 14 1965, Ford Auditorium, Detroit, MI.
Gertrude, last name unknown, homeless and sweet, downtown Jackson, MS.

Text from:
Captain G.L. Sullivan, "Dhow Chasing in Zanzibar Waters", 1873.

Very interesting dark ambient noise drone coming from an Avant-jazz musician.
