about

"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.

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)
