My critique of this biography of Malcolm X is nearly the same as the one I posted earlier about David Collins' biography of the same man. It was a reasonable biography, but lacked the vigor of Alex Haley's "autobiography" from the man himself. I am still searching for a junior version of his biography to teach about him to my middle school classes, but lacking a better version, I intend to try this one next week. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440409004, Paperback)

Malcom X was born into a life of poverty and hardship. When he was just four years old, his family's house burned to the ground. Two years later his father died, and his mother found it difficult to care for her eight children. Left to fend for himself, Malcolm was placed in a foster home. As a teenager, he was convicted of robbery and sent to prison. But Malcom studied hard in jail and by the time he was thirty he had become a powerful leader and speaker. People all around the world listened to what he had to say, and African Americans began to demand changes in the way they were treated.
