This book changed my life (NOT an understatement),
By A Customer
This review is from: The Autobiography of Malcolm X (Paperback)
I read this book shortly after coming out of that teenage phase of 'jungle mentality' where only the fiitest and most ruthless survive. This book should be an integral part of schooling in this millenium as it tells of the rise, heavy fall and rise again of a black child born into prejudiced society, taking a common way out and then recieving the wake up call. It tells of how anyone, if they apply themselves, can achieve their goals and a thorough insight into the interactions between different races and religions which can breed war and peace. It tells of a man that became a strong believer and rigidly exhalted those principles. Malcolm X gave ME a belief that I can study and achieve and STILL keep a strong sense of racial pride. I first read this 11 years ago and I'm now reading it again for the eighth time...
