Publisher Description

ONE OF TIME’S TEN MOST IMPORTANT NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

In the searing pages of this classic autobiography, originally published in 1964, Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, firebrand, and anti-integrationist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement. His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism in a society that denies its nonwhite citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues of our own time. The Autobiography of Malcolm X stands as the definitive statement of a movement and a man whose work was never completed but whose message is timeless. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand America.

Growth, Discovery, and Re-invention

Malcom X in his own words. What more do do you need to know?

Amazing timeless read

I’ve put this book off for almost 2 decades but I am happy to have picked it up after all the summer marches and movement for freedom picked up in 2020. Such a refreshing read and crazy that some things still haven’t changed. I highly recommend it. This should be a school “must read” book for students.
