"I believe in recognizing every human being
as a human being, neither white, black, brown, nor red."

This was just one of the messages that Malcolm X brought to people of color. He lived by the idea that black people should demand equality by taking their lives and futures into their own hands. With guidance from the religious leader Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm became one of the most powerful leaders of the civil rights movement during the 1950s and 1960s, and his beliefs live on today.

Award-winning author Walter Dean Myers, together with illustrator Leonard Jenkins, delivers a straightforward and compelling portrayal of one of America's most influential figures.

Editorial Reviews

[T]he pictures express the intense inner conflict and changes in the boy and man . . . On almost every page, there's a quote in bold black type from Malcolm X's speeches or writings. They make us hear his voice. (ALA Booklist, February 15, 2000)
