written with Alex Haley, based on conversations Haley conducted with Malcolm X. The book is an eye opener for those who are young or who have short memories. It is a story of race in America during the first part of the 20th century, and of one man's life's journey, as he sought justice and truth, and as he grew from a young confused man into a thoughtful thinker, with a worldwide following.
Forty five years today, on February 21st, 1965, Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little, (May 19, 1925), also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, was murdered. One of the many good things that he left behind is this book, which Time magazine named as one of the most important nonfiction books of the 20th century. RIP Malcolm X.
