Definitely not the book I would recommend if you haven't read the Autobiography first. While Payne definitely fills in some gaps in that work and presents some alternate information about Malcom's youth and his relationship with the Nation of Islam, there are large portions of his life glossed over. That said, I think this makes a good companion for readers who want to go deeper and are OK with a book more interested in facts than writing style. ( )

It's been awhile since I've read Malcolm X's autobiography but I saw this and was intrigued by the title and cover. Apparently it was one of heralded books that was written by Les Payne and later finished by his daughter, Tamara. So it seemed like this would be an interesting and different read.

Payne underwent a 30 year journey to interview what seems like anyone he could find: family, friends, Nation of Islam figures, the cops, etc. Anyone still alive who knew Malcolm X. So we get an in depth look at his life from his childhood and early years. Which was interesting, but also have to say that so much emphasis on his earlier years that it fell into a trap that a lot of biographies fall into. Sometimes tracing the earlier years are very important but sometimes if you don't more thoroughly connect it to the future it is not something that really works for me.

I was also intrigued by the relationship with William Lennon. I haven't read the Marable book, but I do recall hearing and reading about some of these conversations not long after reading the autobiography. It's a pity this wasn't addressed in the book, although I understand members of Malcolm X's living family disputes it.

Overall, I thought the book was too long. If I had read this more closely with the Malcolm X autobiography it might make for a nice supplement, but as someone who isn't taking a class or someone who has a layperson's interest might find that the autobiography sufficient (and is pretty good to read on its own).

Borrowed from the library and that was best for me. ( )

This narrative, sourced from family and Nation Of Islam (NOI) members who had never before spoken out, is well-written, riveting, and a perfect companion to Malcolm X's own 1965 autobiography, written with Alex Haley of Roots fame. Of particular interest and poignancy are the recounting of his early, difficult childhood due to his father's death in a streetcar accident and his mother's mental collapse as she tried to raise eight children alone. His family’s involvement with Marcus Garvey’s “Back to Africa” movement is explored as an early influence that can also be seen in Malcolm’s later devotion to father figure Elijah Muhammed. Malcolm X's rough teenage years were spent immersed in criminal activity in Boston and Harlem, here enriched by new insights gathered from his close associates at the time. His subsequent impressive, self-motivated education in prison is stunning in light of his triumphant rebirth as an outstanding and inspiring speaker and leader. Described in detail for the first time is Malcolm’s surreal meeting initiated in January 1961 by KKK leader W.S. Fellows, who thought that his group’s opposition to integration meshed well with the NOI policy of Black separation.

Malcolm's painful break with Elijah Muhammed, whom he had revered as semi-divine, and the subsequent plotting of the assassination and the identification of his murderers (NOI enforcers commanded by Muhammed with the complicity of J. Edgar Hoover) is stunning in its detail. Although the description of Malcolm’s conversion to true Islam in 1964, while making hajj in Mecca, is not as dramatically told as in the autobiography, the only missing element is the very short shrift given to surviving wife Betty Shabazz and his six daughters. An impressive triumph of research and investigation.

Quotes: "Malcolm demonstrated none of the self-doubt, insecurities, or fears that Negroes commonly displayed during close encounters with members of the group dominating American society.”

“Malcolm’s persuasive call to arms was widening the gap between his more global view of the dogma of Muhammed’s sect, weighted down with hocus-pocus religiosity.”

“Beneath this race canopy of the South, a crazy quilt of petit apartheid structures regulated every stage of social contact between black and white individuals, from diapers to the shroud.”

“King and his disciples quickly drew in the journalists who held out hope that their staged, non-violent protests would flare into open violence and front-page news. The unpredictability of this cycle of violence hooked the national media on a gothic civil rights drama that they unfolded on the evening news in the living rooms of America.”

“The rise of the Muslims, and Malcolm especially, made Reverend King all the more appealing to the white, mainstream power brokers.”

“He would redraw a more pragmatic Mason-Dixon line, declaring, “The South to blacks means south of Canada.” ( )
