Great book!! - History
Malcolm X is very blunt about everything... there's no sugar-coating at all in this story, and he touches many everyday topics like drugs, women, hustling, religion and social welfare... His faith led him to overcome many obstacles during his life and I believe this could well inspire many readers when the going gets rough...
Absolutely great and brilliant, touching, deep. A long and real path to understand from the inside the long walk that brought Malcolm X from being a child in a black family, among many brothers, his father killed by Ku Klux Clan, his mother ended up to loose her mind, than through criminality, than, in jail, the lightening about the religion of Islam..and finally as a wise man..
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....Continua
