Book Review "Malcom X for Beginners" By: Bernard Aquina Doctor
One of Malcom X's most significant quotes was "Look out for the children they are the last hope of America, it's too late for us grownups" he said that before he was assinated. This is a very informative novel about the life of an African American leader. The first part of the book describes the up's and down's of Malcom's life. The Klu Klux Klan nearly killed Malcom's mom, dad, brothers and sisters when they set their house on fire. That's just the beginning of Malcom's troubles. During the 1920's and somewhat today racism is ignored. There was no use for an African American trial to go to court, the jury would protect a white person and find him/her not guilty, any way. The turning point in this novel was when Malcom X and his friend Shorty went to jail. However, there were two white girls involved with Malcolm's and Shorty's criminal acts. These women were never convicted or even fined for there wrong doings. Malcom realized that his past was destructive and turns it around by joining the Nation of Islam which empowered him as a man and as an Africa American. This biography is a very strong (informing you of the truth) because it focuses on the hard times of African Americans and a powerful man, Malcom X.

This book is a very strong(inforing you the truth)because if focuses on the hard times of an African American named Malcom X. Segregation then was very extreme.

The Black Prince Feb 4, 2000
This book by Bernard Aquina Doctor gives a nice history of Malcom X, a black leader of the 60's. A leader of the Black Muslims as well as the Black Rights movement alongside (and many times seemingly against) Martin KLuther King Jr. Aquinas lays the ground work by discussing Malcoms childhood, who his father was which would prove to be pivotal later in Malcom's life. Growing up poor and oppressed by the WW2 and the KKK among others, Malcom fought his way to the top and demanded to be heard by all. He was shot and killed at one of his lectures by one of the Black Muslims in 1965. Reccomended for those interested in Malcom X's ideas, as well as those curious about the black movement and some philosophies that went with it.
