    Of the great figure in 20th-century American history perhaps none is more complex and controversial than Malcolm X. Constantly rewriting his own story, he became a criminal, a minister, a leader, and an icon, all before being felled by assassins' bullets at age 39. Through his tireless work and countless speeches he empowered hundreds of thousands of black Americans to create better lives and stronger communities while establishing the template for the self-actualized, independent African American man.

    Overall

    I'm sorry, I know the author has passed away and feel strange questioning his work as he can't answer for himself. But as I listened to parts of this I did question some of the research and wonder if it was just added for shock value and to sell books. I won't name items as I don't want to ruin the book for others but will warn, unless you can or is willing to validate some of the claims made by the author than take them with a grain of salt. Other than that the book was well organized, a bit long in places but a good tool for anyone doing scholarly research into the life of Malcolm X or the NOI / FOI / MGT. I just couldn't give it 4 stars with so many questions lingering in my head.
