Why exactly are books banned from schools? Sooner or later children may be exposed to this in a kind of way. Malcom X was one of many books banned from schools. One of the reasons for this book being banned is because of the controversial lifestyle that Malcom X lived and the violence,. It started of as an auto biography but Malcom X soon died and the job was left for Alex Haley to finish. Alex Haley was accused of exaggerating the truth. Family, friends and the nation of Islam claimed that Ale ...more

I think that this book was very meaningful because with how i can relate to it. i cant say i understand what malcom x went through because i didnt have to go through it myself but i still do live in a world with racism every single day but its not as harsh as what malcom x went through. in this book he describes all of the obsticles that he went through to make a world a better place for blacks living in poverty.

I have not yet read this book but I hope to in the near future. I am still waiting for this book in the mail so when i get it in result i will be able to read it and enjoy it. I am looking foward to reaading it because i have read some reviews by other readers and it seems like a good book in addition my sister already read it and recommeended it to me. In all i am very exciteed to get this book and read it . The book should arrive in the coming days, with god willing.
Long, but rewarding read. The Islamic theories of white's being manufactured by a black scientist are just absolutely insane, but overall this is a very informative book about Malcom X. I read this book in jail, which made it seem more significant at the time- but it's definitely a book I'll always remember. I love the early years of Malcom X, during his zoot suit days. Pity he got blown away by a shot gun.
I really liked this book, but I think that auto/biographies are not my cup of tea. I actually read this for a class, otherwise I probably never would. However, it was a very interesting read and I would recomend it to anyone who would like some insight into this era and a specific place in time. Good stuff.
So far I think the book is great , it explains how african-americans were treated even after they got some rights , this book also explains malcoms struggle growing up with so many relatives (brothers and sisters) , and how he was seperated from em' when his father died , malcom always thought if you wanted something , ask for it , and in his case violence was the easier way to get attention
This biography flows well. You truly cant put this book down. I dont enjoy auto or biografies that much but this one really helps you see how one transforms its life, while given freedom to think while meeting the religion that recognizes no race, color or creed.
