A clear and concise presentation of Malcolm Little, more widely known as Malcolm X or el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz, American Muslim minister and human rights activist. Born in 1925. Assassinated in 1965. It records his entire life from the burning of his house at the age of four, his father's early support of Marcus Garvey, his self-destructive youth, his 6.5 years in prison, conversion to Islam, his work with Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam, his mind-altering experiences in Mecca in 1964 an ...more
Malcolm Little, wanted to live his life as a young boy. He wanted the life that every kid dreamed of. But his house got burnt down and he was at a time when black people weren't treated like white people. So then he wanted to make him self happy and make the black people happy too. Then he became a black nationalist speaker. He gave strong lectures to blacks and made them feel proud to be black.

This is the biography of Malcolm X, an important revolutionary voice in 1950's and 1960's. It is difficult to rate a biography, but I will just concentrate in the information given in the book. As a teenager and non-english speaker the language used was very clear and easy to understand, is incredible how we scan through all the stages of the life of Malcolm. His story demonstrate how much power words can have, even they are not the correct message the way you distributed is sometimes more ...more

This book interested me because I enjoyed the facts that were told, and the stories. Each story told about his childhood fascinated me, and helped me appreciate him and what I have. I would really recommend this book to people who like to learn about current events even though Malcolm X isnt very current!

This book was both informative and easy to tackle. I look forward to learning more about Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam. The book includes a glossary with words such as brainwashed and demagogue and is followed with an index. Recommended for K-12 libraries and is highly appropriate for Black History Month programming and display ideas.

I decided to do Malcolm X for my English assignment. I knew nothing of man until I read this. Without searching him up I was given a clear description of who he is, how he made difference and what he did. This book gave me a good perspective of the life of Malcolm
