Biografía del líder negro americano religioso y activista que nació Malcolm Little, publicado en 1965. Escrito por Alex Haley, que había llevado a cabo extensas entrevistas grabadas con Malcolm X antes de su asesinato en 1965, el libro ganó fama como un trabajo clásico en negro experiencia americana.

La autobiografía es contada a través de la voz en primera persona de Malcolm X con contenido añadido y narrativa proporcionada por Alex Haley. Aunque a veces auto-engrandecimiento, Malcolm X habla de su extraordinaria transformación de un niño cuyo padre fue asesinado por racistas blancos, a un joven estafador y traficante de drogas en Harlem, Nueva York, a un erudito autodidacta en la cárcel, a un destacado líder y ministro de la Nación del Islam, y, finalmente, a un hombre transformado por su viaje a África y a la Meca y se marca como una amenaza por parte de los líderes de la Nación del Islam.

A través de una vida de pasión y lucha, Malcolm X se convirtió en una de las figuras más influyentes del siglo 20. Aquí, el hombre que se hacía llamar "el hombre más enojado Negro en América" ​​relata cómo su conversión al Islam le ayudó a enfrentarse a su ira y reconocer la hermandad de toda la humanidad. Un clásico establecida de la América moderna, la autobiografía de Malcolm X fue aclamado por el New York Times como "Extraordinaria. Una brillante, libro doloroso, importante. "La fuerza de sus palabras, el poder de sus ideas siguen resonando más de una generación después de su aparición.

Excerpts

Bad people are always speculating—why am I as I am? To understand that of any person, his whole life, from birth must be reviewed. All of our experiences fuse into our personality. Everything that ever happened to us is an ingredient.

Today, when everything I do has an urgency, I would not spend one hour in the preparation of a book which had the ambition to perhaps titillate some readers. But I am spending many hours because the full story is the best way that I know to have it seen, and understood, that I had sunk to the very bottom of the American white man's society hen—soon now, in prison—I found Allah and the religion of Islam and it completely transformed my life.
Page 173, added by ZombieRecollect.

Malcolm X makes clear why he feels it is important to share his early life and struggle with substance use disorder.

Any person who claims to have deep feelings for other human beings should think a long, long time before he votes to have other men kept behind bars—caged. I'm not saying there shouldn't be prisons, but there shouldn't be bars. Behind bars, a man never reforms.
