    About "Malcolm X"

      • Malcolm X

        Malcolm X born Malcolm Little , also known as El Hajj Malik El Shabazz, was an American Black Muslim minister and a spokesman for the Nation of Islam.After leaving the Nation of Islam in 1964, he made the pilgrimage, the Hajj, to Mecca and became a Sunni Muslim He also founded the Muslim Mosque, Inc and the Organization of Afro American Unity Less than a year later, he was assassinated in Washington Heights on the first day of National Brotherhood Week.Historian Robin D.G Kelley wrote, Malcolm X has been called many things Pan Africanist, father of Black Power, religious fanatic, closet conservative, incipient socialist, and a menace to society The meaning of his public life his politics and ideology is contested in part because his entire body of work consists of a few dozen speeches and a collaborative autobiography whose veracity is challenged Malcolm has become a sort of tabula rasa, or blank slate, on which people of different positions can write their own interpretations of his politics and legacy.


    1. “I’ve had enough of someone else’s propaganda. I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”- Malcolm XIn High School my history syllabus covered just a few pages on African-American civil rights heroes. The majority of those pages were on Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X was barely mentioned. After reading thi [...]

    2. This book counts for a lot. Cornel West says that one of the deepest fears for black America is that Malcolm X was fundamentally right, that the political system here is incapable of being changed through traditional means in order to serve the black community what they are due. "What are they due?" asks the conservative A share in the incredible wealth of the country that they have labored to build for hundreds of years, often against their own will, answers the REALIST self-actualization, in w [...]

    3. عاهدتُ الله ألا أنسى أن الإسلام هو الذي أعطاني الأجنحة التى أحلِّق بها اليوم،ولم أنس ذلك أبدًالم أنسه لحظة واحدة.مالكوم إكسحاولتُ أن أكتب عنه فلم أعرففقط شهدتُ بعيني كيف يرفع الإسلام بهَديْهِ المرء من أسفل سافلين إلى إنسانٍ تتفتح أمام وجهه الآفاق,وتجوب شهرته البلدان,ويضع ا [...]

    4. The voice of Malcolm X was powerful, unbridled and simply heroic. He is one of the most quotable men of the twentieth century:“In fact, once he is motivated no one can change more completely than the man who has been at the bottom. I call myself the best example of that.”“It is only after slavery and prison that the sweetest appreciation of freedom can come. ”“I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being--neither white, black, brown, or red; and when you are dealing with [...]

    5. This is the life story of Malcolm Little, later Malcolm X, later El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. As are most white people in this country, I was led to believe that Malcolm X was just an angry, militant racist who wanted to kill white people in the same way that angry, militant racists in the South want to kill black people. Nothing could be further from the truth.This book, more than any other I've read, opened my eyes to see how the innate racism in our country works and affects the people it is mos [...]

    6. “I’ve had enough of someone else’s propaganda,” I had written to these friends. “I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, the matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”Undoubtedly one of the most filling books I’ve read all year.It starts simply, with solid, familiar flavors, something like a brandy old-fashioned complete with fruit decorations, and a little bo [...]

    7. “If Malcolm X were not a Negro, his autobiography would be little more than a journal of abnormal psychology, the story of a burglar, dope pusher, addict and jailbird—with a family history of insanity—who acquires messianic delusions and sets forth to preach an upside-down religion of ‘brotherly’ hatred.”-Saturday Evening Post, Sept. 12, 1965Sensationalist, yes? Reminiscent of certain responses to Twelve Years a Slave winning multiple Academy Awards at this year's Oscars, and this is [...]

    9. I love this book Alhamdulillah. I think 'The Autobiography of Malcolm X' is one of the important non-fiction books. Everyone! This book is a must read! I need to tell people who haven't taught by Islam. Elijah Muhammad was not the Messenger of Allah because Allah said there is no Prophet will come after Prophet Muhammad SAW. Prophet Muhammad SAW was the last Messenger of Allah. Elijah might told them that he was the Messenger of Allah, he might have even believed that he was or he might have kno [...]

    10. I'm in such awe of this book and the man behind it that I don't think I can really give it a fair review. I came late to Malcolm X - I didn't pick up his autobiography until I was twenty-five, during my third year teaching in the Bronx. He manages to so clearly articulate the injustice and anger that results from racism in America, and at the same time is unflinchingly honest regard his own life and his own failings. Following the progression of his thought and philosophy changed the way I thoug [...]

    11. "This book I dedicate to my beloved wife Betty and to our children whose understanding and whose sacrifices made it possible for me to do my work."Malcolm's dedication of the book.Note: I will often refer to Malcolm X in the following as simply “X”e edition I readBesides the first person narration, this edition contains a Foreword by Malcolm’s eldest daughter, Attallah Shabazz; an Introduction by M.S. Handler, a NYT reporter whom Malcolm X reportedly believed had "none of the usual prejudi [...]

    12. من العظيم جداً ليس فقط أن تتبع مسيرة شخص كملكوم إكس من مولده حتى وفاته من المهم أن ندرك أنه ثمة مفاهيم معينة لابد أن نمررها لأنفسنا بصورة و اضحة و للآخرين التحول الجذري في حياة ملكوم إكس ما تم إلا بشعلة ذكاء كانت مستقرة في داخله و نمت بعناية الله وان كانت بطريقة خاطئة لزمن طويل [...]

    13. This is my second time though this book and it is still one of my favorite stories of all. I read several hundred pages of it while taking Greyhound to Virginia last week. The whole way I was sitting with three black ladies, and we all kept on talking about what all of us thought of Malcolm X and his ideas. Early in the trip lady across from me asked what I was reading--I think she knew and just wanted to see my reaction to her asking. I told her and we got into an amazing conversation about rac [...]

    15. يجب أن نتعلم من الأطفال عدم الخجل من الفشل و أن نقوم و نعيد الكرة . إن معظم الكبار يرزحون تحت الخوف و الحذر و يركنون إلى الأمان و لذلك تجدهم مجفلين و متصلبين و خائفين و لذلك يفشل أكثرهم***لقد غيرت القراءة مجرى حياتي تغييرا جذريا و لم أكن أهدف من ورائها إلى كسب أية شهادات لتحسين م [...]

    17. I lived in a brown shingled house on Channing Way in Berkeley with 3 other roommates back in the early 70s. Next door to us, on the second story of an apartment building, lived a young black man. One day when I came home two of my male roommates said that they had something to show me in the kitchen. Spit. The black man next door had purposely spit out his window onto ours. I didn't know if either of the guys in our house had irritated him or if he just didn't like looking at us. In any case, th [...]

    18. Several years ago I decided to make the reading of The Autobiography of Malcolm X mandatory for my high school Honor's English students (I had read the book when it was first released). I taught in an "urban" Maryland public school, and most of the students, although considered honor's, were void of deeper literary exposure. My decision to "teach Malcolm X" was not looked upon well by the administration, but after thorough student led discussions and tying the story to their personal journey, th [...]

    19. I will not attempt to add my two cents to the five decades of commentary that currently exist. But I will say this, when Malcolm says of Elijah Muhammad, "My black brothers and sisters, you have come from your homes to hear-now you are going to hear-America's wisest black man! America's boldest black man! America's most fearless black man." I uttered an audible - No. It was you, Malcolm. It was you.

    20. Fantastic read! a look into the courageous life of a true believer of life's struggles in racism etc(paperback!)

    21. إن سيرة مالكوم إكس الذاتية إن هى إلا ترتيلة تمجد روح الإنسان التى يمكنها البقاء والاستمرار فى مواجهة أكثر الظروف افسادًا وتدميرًا. والإنسان فى مقدوره أن يحقق هذا البقاء وهذا الاستمرار لأنه يحلم دائمًا بعالم من البراءة الأولى وبذا يحتفظ بقدر من النقاء الروحى حتى بعد أن يصبح [...]

    22. There are only a handful of books you can read in a lifetime that have a tangible impact on you. My dad reccomended this to me when I was 15, as I searched for something interesting in between the lawyer, doctor, monster New York Times bestsellers I'd read compulsively. Alex Haley helped Malcolm X shape a personal history that spit in the face of the public school education I had recieved up until that point, and more importantly I learned the value of literature. How books have the potential to [...]

    23. On Dr. King's Birthday I was knee-deep in the Autobiography of Malcolm X. At a nearby holiday celebration, one speaker stood at the pulpit and noted that "there was Martin and there was Malcolm. Thank God Martin won."But did he? As I think about the Autobiography, I'm impressed by the book as an incredible testament to one man's intelligence, eloquence, and passion. In its passion, it has lived on; Malcolm's legacy lives on, visible in subtle parts of our culture. We see him in the power of the [...]

    24. "لقد تعلمت باكراً أن الحق لا يُعطى لمن يسكت عنه وأن على المرء أن يحدث بعض الضجيج إن أراد أن يحصل على شيء! كان إخوتي الكبار يسكتون إذا رجعوا من المدرسة وطلبوا من أمي خبزا وزبدة أو أي شيء ولم تعطه لهم؛ أما أنا فكنت أصرخ وأجعل عاليها سافلها حتى تعطيني ما أريد! " -السلام عليكموعليكم [...]

    25. I understand why rap culture stresses "hustling" so much. It's as if rappers just never finished the book. It's not as awesome an autobiography as Gandhi's but better than most any other bio you'll find. Usually biographies are just dry chronicles of some rich asshole's favorite color and addiction du jour. This really gets you inside his head. I am thoroughly convinced that he should share an equal place in the canon of great Americans with equal respect and prestige as George Washington. Also, [...]

    26. I was deeply moved my that book! That's why I took time to write this review, and actually I'm not revealing too much of what I felt and what I think cause it really touched me. It started with Alex Haley's foreword: I felt angry, sad, moved, deeply moved and really, really angry, furious! I couldn't believe what I was reading actually! I maybe have to explain things I'm a Muslim and I was reading about another Muslim but what he was saying and doing was totally wrong! I became aware of somethin [...]

    29. For a long time while reading The Autobiography, I thought it was going to be a 4-star read for me. And then the last 50 pages happened.Amazing. Such an important read. It has its flaws, of course. For example, I found it a little too wordy in some places, and there are some things that were said that I just couldn't agree with.But it was still kind of a revelation. As a non-American, white, comparatively privileged woman, there are realities that I am just not familiar with and this book helped [...]

    30. إن الناس لا تعرف أن كتاباً واحداً كفيلاً بأن يغير مجرى حياة الإنسان” من أروع ما قرأت لقد كان شخصا عظيما دون شكو من المميز معرفة انه كان مجرما قبل ان يصبح مفكرا وقائداًوأن أهم تغيير حصل في حياته كان في السجنكيف ساهمت القراءة والاسلام في جعله شخصاً افضلوبعدها كيف صحح الحج مسار [...]
