Publisher's Summary

As a 14-year-old he was Malcolm Little, the president of his class and a top student. At 16 he was hustling tips at a Boston nightclub. At 20 "Detroit Red" was in prison. It was there Malcolm Little started the journey that would lead him to adopt the name Malcolm X, and develop his beliefs about what being black means in America: beliefs that shook America then, and still shake America today. His significant role in the Nation of Islam and eventual split from it, along with his journey to Mecca, followed by his assassination in Harlem are chronicled in this fascinating portrait.

Good introduction to Malcolm X

This is a good (but rather short) biography on Malcolm X. The narration is very good and what there is of the story is well researched and informative.

Having read stories on Martin Luther King Jr the difference in life stories of these two men is intriguing. Well worth a listen if you are interested in the civil rights movement.
