Pretty good simplified history of a very complex man. Actually, it simplified that bit about Rosa Parks a little too much.

I've been meaning to learn more about Malcolm X for years. It was nice to find a biography geared toward younger readers (therefore short).

I didn't know about his trip to Mecca and how much it changed him. The last year of his short life was less militant and more about treating everyone as human beings.

Malcolm X had a very interesting life. It's just so sad that he died at a young age. He was a good kid but once he started growing up, he started doing bad things and later went to jail for 10 years because of it. He got transferred from jail to jail and saw Muslim people. He later started believing in the Muslim religion. He worked with Elijah and later found out that Elijah wanted to kill him.
