Malcolm X's searing memoir belongs on the small shelf of great autobiographies. The reasons are many: the blistering honesty with which he recounts his transformation from a bitter, self-destructive petty criminal into an articulate political activist, the continued relevance of his militant analysis of white racism, and his emphasis on self-respect and self-help for African Americans. And there's the vividness with which he depicts black popular culture--try as he might to criticize those lindy hops at Boston's Roseland dance hall from the perspective of his Muslim faith, he can't help but make them sound pretty wonderful. These are but a few examples. The Autobiography of Malcolm X limns an archetypal journey from ignorance and despair to knowledge and spiritual awakening. When Malcolm tells coauthor Alex Haley, "People don't realize how a man's whole life can be changed by one book," he voices the central belief underpinning every attempt to set down a personal story as an example for others. Although many believe his ethic was directly opposed to Martin Luther King Jr.'s during the civil rights struggle of the '60s, the two were not so different. Malcolm may have displayed a most un-Christian distaste for loving his enemies, but he understood with King that love of God and love of self are the necessary first steps on the road to freedom. --Wendy Smith


“Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will.”—Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father

“Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book.”The New York Times
“A great book . . . Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth.”The Nation
“The most important book I’ll ever read, it changed the way I thought, it changed the way I acted. It has given me courage I didn’t know I had inside me. I’m one of hundreds of thousands whose lives were changed for the better.”—Spike Lee
“This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle.”—I. F. Stone

Malcolm X is truly a powerful, significant, and essential work for all time. Why? Because you are able to witness how a man suffered from the effects of prejudice and his whole disposition was formed from it. You see how a very angry man stays angry at the "white devils" for most of his life. However, the unique aspect of Malcolm X is that he changed his views towards the end with the realization that his religion and own understanding gave him. This book serves as a learning experience, for one learns not only about racism and a mans struggle with it, but how to listen and read with a open mind. Many people get very offended at what Malcolm says and I can relate. However, your purpose as a reader should not be to judge Malcolm, but just listen to what he has to say, and learn from his experience. Knowledge, insight, and power of personal change are all gained from this story. I cannot stress enough the importance of having his autobiography in your memory. A highly recommended read.

Format: Taschenbuch
Malcolm X (born 1925) became one of the most influential black leaders of the 20th century, however he left no writings except this biography. His philosophy is known almost entirely from the countless speeches and interviews he gave between 1952 until his death in 1965. Many of those speeches, especially from the last year of his life, were recorded and have been published. It was often said that he was the only man in America who could start a race riot - or stop one. "I don't know," Malcolm X said when asked about this, "If I could start one, I don't know if I'd want to stop one." He was angry, "the angriest black man in America," he called himself. His contempt for the refinement of speech and vivid oratory, he was the black leader who expressed perhaps better than any other the fury and despair that had built up at the bottom of the social pyramid.

During his last two years Malcolm X succeeded to find meaning of the life he lived, a remarkable achievement considering his incredibly busy schedule. During long evenings, burning the midnight oil, he would visit Alex Haley's Greenwich Village studio and talk half the night - and then rise a few hours later to plunge again into his daily battle. Slowly the talks progressed, over countless cups of coffee lightened with cream - "the only thing I like integrated" - and slowly Malcolm X emerges as a surprisingly sensitive personality that defies his public image in thoughtful ways. By the time the book was completed just before his death, he had wrought something far beyond the initial purpose. Rarely has there been a volume about which it can be more fittingly said: Touch this book and you touch a man.

The Autobiography of Malcolm X was a very well written book about religion, racism, and self-discovery. This book is a great read for anyone who wants to clear up any misconceptions they have about Malcolm X or all the issues linked to him. This book is also great for just about anybody because of the universality of the problems he faces in his life. Malcolm begins as a very bright child but because of his environment and society he is forced into many years of confusion. This caused him to become a hustler in Harlem and go to jail for several years. His turning point seemed to be in jail when he discovered the religion of Islam. Finding something to truly believe in enabled him to pick himself up and turn his life around for his own survival. Then later on when he is betrayed by Elijah Muhammed the only man he ever really looked up to and respected, he creates a better self even more by breaking out of his narrow-minded belifs and learning to love people for who they are, and learning to love himself as the individual he finally found in himself before his tragic death. Although the preaching and racism that took up a few entire chapters upset me and began to lose my interest, I think working through it and finishing this book was extremely important and well worth my time.

Before I read this book, I had a negative feeling about Malcolm X. Then I realized I didn't know anything about him. I don't like to pass judgement without being informed, so I decided to read this book. I didn't know what to expect. I read the book with a completely open mind. Anybody reading it would have to do so, or you won't get anything out of it. I now have a better understanding of what would make a black man view white people as "devils." I understand that black pride is not about being anti-white, but about overcoming the overwhelming odds that are stacked up against a Black American. I would recommend this book to anyone. I don't think there's a person in the world who couldn't learn something from it. For me, it was an entirely new viewpoint. I think a lot about race, but from MY perspecitve, as a white teenage girl who exclusively dates black men. That makes me deffensive about black people talking bad about "the white man." But I put down my deffenses and objectively read what turned out to be the most influential book I've ever read. After reading this book, I don't see how anybody could feel anything toward Malcolm X other than a deep admiration and respect.
