Product description

Enduring such terrifying experiences as having his family home firebombed by white supremacists as a child, along with years of daily racist insults and barriers, shaped the life of Malcolm X - transforming him into one of the most articulate and rousing black nationalist leaders of all time. Beatrice Gormley, a prolific author of biographies for young people, captures Malcolm X's growth: his youth as a petty criminal; his jailhouse conversion to the Nation of Islam; his marriage and his assassination in "Harlem's Audubon Ballroom"."Sterling Biographies" are packed with information and filled with unique images including rare documentary photographs, artwork, maps and personal artefacts. Focusing on inventors and innovative thinkers, they present first-person accounts and events related in an intimate and accessible style.
