Autobiography of Malcolm X
I officially finished the Autobiography of Malcolm X yesterday, and after doing so, I can say with great confidence that this is a book everyone(red,blue,yellow,black and white) should read. Despite his shortcomings, he was truly a good, honorable man.
He was unapologetically committed to confronting and ending America's race problem the best way he knew how, and he did so until the second his life ended.
I'll also say that most of what we know of him is a lie. He was not a violent man, but he was intelligent, witty, charming, influential, loyal, and ever-evolving. It's a shame he was taken from us so soon. What a real tragedy it was/is.
Rest In Peace Mr. El Hajj Malik El Shabazz.
