Originally published by Grove Press in 1965.
From the Publisher:
If there was any one man who articulated the anger, the struggle, and the beliefs of African Americans in the 1960s, that man was Malxolm X. His AUTOBIOGRAPHY is now an established classic of modern America, a book that expresses like none other the crucial truth about our times.
"Extraordinary. A brilliant, painful, important book."
Born Malcolm Little, and known as Detroit Red during his years as a petty criminal in Harlem, Malcolm X turned his life around, and here tells his story to Alex Haley, the famed author of ROOTS. In this autobiography, Malcolm recalls his troubled upbringing, candidly reveals his sordid past, and tells of his jailhouse conversion to Islam. He includes an account of his enlightening pilgrimage to Mecca as well as his dispute with Elijah Muhammad, the leader of the Nation of Islam. As a speaker, Malcolm X became a major, if controversial, figure on the American scene, preaching on self-esteem and identity, giving hope, and generally "telling it like it was." THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM X, which was published after Malcolm's 1965 assassination, was said to have influenced the Black Power movement. A staple on many university reading lists, it has also been a perennial bestseller as a mass-market paperback. In 1992, director Spike Lee filmed MALCOLM X, starring Denzel Washington, for which both Alex Haley and Malcolm X were given writer's credits.


"Though Haley has captured Malcolm's style and Malcolm's anger, the book somehow is a curiously external record, a verbal kinescope that sheds little light on Malcolm's tormented soul. Yet it is filled with power and passion, as it follows the stations of Malcolm's journey from the cross to the crescent of Islam." 11/15/1965
