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. Later, he joined the Nation of Islam and preached for civil rights - but this made him a target of the United States government and of ruthless assassins.

This audio companion for the graphic novel Malcolm X: A Graphic Biography allows listeners to follow along with the book's evocative drawings by Randy DuBurke. Listeners will gain a new perspective on the activist from this dynamic biography.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clint Heitz | 11/17/2013

    " It's not a novel, but it fits the graphic designation. As for the book, I'll just say - interesting. "

    " The art is unremarkable and the writing is just okay, but it's a very interesting story. Worth reading for the history. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah | 4/4/2013

    " More educational than you'd expect. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meredith Lewis | 3/29/2013

    " I found this hard to read-- I think this is not the type of illustration I do well with in graphic novels. I did, however, find it incredibly interesting since I've never read the actual Autobiography of Malcolm X. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy | 3/15/2013

    " In this book I learned about Malcolm X and how he was important to the World. This is a really good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theophilus (Theo) | 2/8/2013

    " Good rendition. I've read several works about and by Malcolm X, including the Alex Haley version. This one has the facts right. As with many grahic novels, it is a summary rather than the complete works, but should be a good intro to reluctant readers and maybe an enticement to seek more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/7/2013

    " I love history in graphic novel format, but I think between having read the Haley autobiography and watching Spike Lee's X, this seemed a slight let down. Maybe better as an intro to Malcolm X. "
