Book Description

First published in 1965, then by Penguin in 1968 and reprinted in 1970. "I do not expect to live long enough to read my book..." From hustling, drug addiction and armed violence in America's black ghettoes Malcolm X turned, in a dramatic prison conversion, to the puritanical fervour of the 'Black Muslims'. As their spokesman he became identified in the white press as a terrifying preacher of race hatred; but to his direct audience, oppressed black Americans, he brought hope and self-respect. His autobiography reveals his quick-witted integrity, usually obscured by batteries of frenzied headlines, and the fierce idealism which led him to reject both liberal hypocrisies and black racialism and to suffer a martyr's death. "This extraordinary autobiography is a brilliant, painful, important book" - New York Times
Author Malcolm X, with the assistance of Alex Haley
