Synopsis

Malcolm X A Revolutionary Voice by Beatrice Gormley

Enduring such terrifying experiences as having his family home firebombed by white supremacists as a child, along with years of daily racist insults and barriers, shaped the life of Malcolm X - transforming him into one of the most articulate and rousing black nationalist leaders of all time. Beatrice Gormley, a prolific author of biographies for young people, captures Malcolm X's growth: his youth as a petty criminal; his jailhouse conversion to the Nation of Islam; his marriage and his assassination in Harlem's Audubon Ballroom . Sterling Biographies are packed with information and filled with unique images including rare documentary photographs, artwork, maps and personal artefacts. Focusing on inventors and innovative thinkers, they present first-person accounts and events related in an intimate and accessible style.
