Autobiography of Malcolm X
Got this book seven years ago at school -- now chance upon this again and opened this up for the first time. I finished the first part -- when X was known as Little -- a slave's name he insisted. It was a turbulent account of the life of a Black
Man might have like -- poverty and crime stricken -- with few chance of professional development and under blatant oppression. The reader would know X as he was and how he came to an epiphany and charismatic leader of the civil rights movement. This is something that should become a part of your book shelve that you pull out reading bits and parts from time to time. Love it.
