THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM X

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

He was called Malcolm Little at birth; he was buried as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz; but he lived most of his life as Malcolm X and was the most rabid racist of his time while he ran counter to the movement which dominated it.

I suggest it is read cover to cover!!!

The real prophet is never loved in hometown.
This man was the embodiment of black pride, love, power.
Arguably, the most important black book in us history

I won't be fancy about this review. I had to read it for a college history class, and I'll be honest, I wasn't looking forward to it. At the time I, being a white kid from a middle class family in northern Virginia and Maryland, didn't think that I'd enjoy reading something by (and about) someone who wouldn't much care for me if he saw me.
My viewpoint changed very quickly in reading this book. I found it interesting, exciting, inspiring and sad and it completely changed my view of the man. An excellent book all around and I'll be honest it's now my favorite book I've ever read...
