“Where does one begin? I found this biography extraordinary. It is a wealth of information from the very first pages. It is a history lesson of a man's complete transformation. Malcolm X through completely believing in the struggles of blacks and working towards his numerous goals found himself and his way to the very end of his untimely assassination in 1965 at the young age of thirty-nine.
The book goes through the years 1925 - 1965 beginning with the great migration of blacks from the southern states to the north - Chicago, Detroit Boston, Philadelphia and New York City among other places. It is a true story of of race and class in America.
The author accomplished this work without bias - the book is clear and concise and reflects where we are today as a country and how we came to this place. I highly recommend this book and rate it as one of best books I have read.
"We declare our right on this earth to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being in this society, on this earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary." ~Malcolm X”
