Review by Fallon, Northwest Branch

     Through a series of interviews with Alex Haley, Malcolm X , one of the most controversial speakers in history, details his struggles to break free from the "white man's"  oppression. From being raised by a widowed mother to becoming a thief and drug dealer in Harlem to eventually preaching in the Nation of Islam and becoming one of the biggest names in the Civil Rights movement, Malcolm X tells his story.
 

     I read this book for my book report and found it very enlightening. I heard from multiple sources that it was a good book, and they were correct. While his ideas and preachings are almost unbelievable, you get to see his growth as a person throughout the book, which was very interesting. I usually do not read autobiographies or books about the Civil Rights movement, but I think we can all learn something from Malcolm X's life.
