Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little, lived a short, often violent life. This story frames Malcolm’s death with his upbringing and the racial and political struggles that defined his adult life. Malcolm was struck by racial injustice at a young age. His father was murdered - though police ruled it a suicide - for his involvement in civil rights movements. He graduated from junior high at the top of his class, but his dreams were crushed when his teacher told him a black boy could never become a lawyer.
