Publisher Description

As a fourteen-year-old, he was Malcolm Little, the president of his class and a top student. At sixteen, he was hustling tips at a Boston nightclub. In Harlem, he was known as Detroit Red, a slick street operator. At nineteen, he was back in Boston, leading a gang of burglars. At twenty, he was in prison. It was in prison that Malcolm Little started the journey that would lead him to adopt the name Malcolm X, and there he developed his beliefs about what being black means in America—beliefs that shook America then and still shake America today. Walter Dean Myers' classic biography sheds light on a black man whose beliefs changed America.

    " While By Any Means Necessary was a great story read by a great reader it is on the short side so it will leave you wanting more. If you are satisfied with a somewhat brief look at the life of Malcolm X then this will be perfect for you. However, if you would like to have a much more in depth review of who Malcolm X was I suggest you look elsewhere. "

    " I love this book because it gives you an idea of who Malcolm X really was as opposed to who he was portrayed to be. You can read about his growth as a man and how empowering he is in this book. "

    " no mediation, just Malcolm rapping his views, good survey of his speeches from different periods in his life and philosophies. Worth picking up for the post-NOI writings that get often overlooked. "
