This simple biography traces the life of Malcome X from childhood to his assassination through simple story telling, quotations and beautiful impressionistic illustrations. I found the book interesting in how it emphasized the influence of his father's ideas about black power, as that part of his life is little explored in other mediums such as the movie. I wish it would have spend more time on his years as member of the Nation of Islam and the break from them.
