If there was any one man who articulated the anger, the struggle, and the beliefs of Afican Americans in the 1960s, that man was Malcolm X. His Autobiography is now an established classic of modern America, a book that expresses like none other the crucial truth about our violent times.

Chosen by Time Magazine as one of the 10 most important nonfiction books of the century.

"Caught" in the mail today as a surprise box-o-books Wishlist RABCK! Thank you!

1999 Ballantine paperback of the 1965 bestseller. This was on my list of the best modern nonfiction books to read.

Edit February 18, 2019: This is intriguing as a historical document, but infuriating as a racist and violent celebration of societal destruction for a twisted ideology by a self-obsessed individual. And in the end, the same ideology of violence that he fostered ended up ruthlessly slaughtering him. And still, there was no remorse in the community for what they had done. The witnesses actually protected the killers. In the end, even his shift toward tolerance at the end does not seem to clean up the damage that his life continues to do to society through today. I currently have this ranked at #2423 on my ranked list of best-read books lately.
