The Max Reddick Experience

The Autobiography of Malcolm X (Penguin Modern Classics) as told to Malcom X
From hustling, drug addiction and armed violence in America’s black ghettos Malcolm X turned, in a dramatic prison conversion, to the puritanical fervour of the Black Muslims. As their spokesman he became identified in the white press as a terrifying teacher of race hatred; but to his direct audience, the oppressed American blacks, he brought hope and self-respect. This autobiography (written with Alex Haley) reveals his quick-witted integrity, usually obscured by batteries of frenzied headlines, and the fierce idealism which led him to reject both liberal hypocrisies and black racialism.  [book link]

  16. twangling said: A classic. I’m really interested in how Manning Marable’s “Malcolm X: A Life of Revinvention” destabilizes the beloved Autobiography. Fascinating man.
