Product description


“Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will.”—Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father

“Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book.”The New York Times
“A great book . . . Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth.”The Nation
“The most important book I’ll ever read, it changed the way I thought, it changed the way I acted. It has given me courage I didn’t know I had inside me. I’m one of hundreds of thousands whose lives were changed for the better.”—Spike Lee
“This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle.”—I. F. Stone

From the Publisher

This book is such a classic. Reading it is almost like a rite of passage for young African AMericans.
I didn't discover it until I was in college (and an elderly female white professor of black lit introduced it to me). Wow! I'm glad she did. But my son read it at age 12. How much better that he's reading Malcolm's
moving story now --rather than late like I did. I believe it will truly affect his life in a very major way.
If I were rich, I'd donate thousands of these books to schools and young folks nationwide.
