  • Chronicling the life of one of the most influential black leaders of the twentieth century, the book reveals how Malcolm X grew from a poor child into a street hustler and eventually into the national spokesperson of the Nation of Islam.  It documents how Malcolm X repeatedly reinvented himself to deal with the difficulties of the day.  His biting oratory and his obvious sincerity made the book an international best seller almost overnight.
