If there was any one man who articulated the anger, the struggle, and the beliefs of African Americans in the 1960s, that man was Malcolm X. His Autobiography is now an established classic of modern American literature, a book that expresses like no other, the crucial truth about race and racism in our time.

This book is the result of a unique collaboration between Alex Haley and Malcolm X; it is the life story of an activist whose voice and philosophy resonate from every page. His experience and his intelligence continue to speak to millions on the greatest issue of our day: the ongoing African-American struggle for social and economic equality.

"...an unsparing confession and spiritual quest...tells a haunting tale of racial persecution and rebirth." —Time

"The most important book I'll ever read. It changed the way I thought, it changed the way I acted. It has given me courage that I didn't know I had inside me. I'm one of hundreds of thousands whose life was changed for the better."—Spike Lee

“[…an] excellent source[s] for learning about the diverse center of America.”
--Professor Syble Simon, English Dept., Houston Community College-Central
