Book Title and Author: The Autobiography of Malcolm X, by Malcolm and Alex Haley Introduce the book: This is an autobiography intended for high school or older about Malcolm X.
Summary: El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, also known as Malcolm X lived an inspiring life of passion and struggle fighting for civil rights. He was an American Muslim minister and human rights activist who was a popular figure during the civil rights movement. He is best known for his controversial black racial advocacy and spent his time as a vocal spokesmen for the Nation of Islam.
Favorite Part: My favorite of the book is when Malcolm overcomes his shyness and develops a great passion for dancing. He contrasts the unadventurous dancing done in Michigan with the expressive dancing that goes on at the Boston parties.
Recommendation: This is a book for children that are in high school or graduated high school. I recommend reading this book if you’re interested in Malcolm X or studying the civil rights movements.
