Ilyasah Shabazz is the third daughter of Malcolm X She is an activist, producer, motivational speaker, and author of the critically acclaimed Growing Up X and the picture book Malcolm Little: The Boy Who Grew Up to Become Malcolm X.
X follows Malcolm from his childhood to his imprisonment for theft at age twenty, when he found the faith that would lead him to forge a new path and command a voice that still resonates today. Ilyasah says, “My father and I both lost our fathers to assassination at an early age, but my father’s voice, his beliefs, and his lessons remained a vital part of my childhood. I consider it an honor and a privilege to tell the story of his life and work.” "Powerful and charming—makes you see things in a whole new way. One of the best books I've read in quite some time."—Chris Rock
