    One thought on “Malcolm X”

    1. Malcolm X by Jack Rummel is an illustrated edition that does a remarkable job of delineating Malcolm X’s childhood, ambitions, and rise to a political figure. I especially loved the photos because they helped me understand the places he had lived and worked in. The narrative was very captivating and easy to understand. Read the book in two days. This is an excellent way on learning and enjoying history at the same time.It is shocking to me that Malcolm X had a very violent childhood. His adult [...]

    2. A good short little introduction to Malcolm X. It was interesting to read about his Islamic beliefs. He was first a member of the Nation of Islam which is a black supremacist group having little to do with Orthodox Islam. The Nation of Islam was started by a guy named W.D.

    3. Just read Malcolm X Militant Black Leader by Jack Rummel. Simple, plain, clear & right to the point. First book I read on Malcolm X. I intend to read his autobiography (by Alex Haley) as well, but came across this the other day at a discount bookstore for only a $1.00. It's a Black American Series book that is well worth the read.

    4. I thought the book was very good for all the facts that it gave me all the facts that I need this book so it changed my life by the point of views I get now in the days. It talked how his parents lived his brothers and sisters and the Ku Kluks Klan. So if you like history this book is just for you.

    5. This is a biography on Malcolm X who was a civil rights leader. I like it a lot because it talks about the black struggle, and takes you on his journey.

    6. A good, concise introduction to Malcolm X. Well written and interesting. I'd give it more than 3 stars probably but it is very short, less than 100 pages.
