This paper describes in depth the life and ideas of civil rights leader Malcolm X.

“Malcolm Little was born to Reverend Earl and Louise Little on May 19, 1925, in Omaha, Nebraska. The Littles worked for unity of black people and believed in self-determination. They raised their children in an environment of ethnic awareness and dignity. Because of their father’s preaching of the black cause, they were also raised in an environment of violence that included being harassed, threatened, burned out of their home, and shot at. The ultimate blow came when Malcolm was six, when his father was killed by white racists (Malcolm X – An Islamic Perspective).”
