Stone compare the narrative to the Icarus myth.

    Marable argues autobiographical "memoirs" are "inherently biased", representing the subject as he would appear with certain facts privileged, others deliberately omitted. He decided to join the Nation of Islam. American writer and literary critic Harold Bloom writes, "When Haley approached Malcolm with the idea, Malcolm gave him a startled look On the second of two visits to Africa inhe addressed the Organization of African Unity known as the African Union sincean intergovernmental group established to promote African unity, international cooperation, and economic development.

    Malcolm's killing on 21 February in front of a Harlem audience that included his wife and young children has been the subject of sometimes deluded speculation. A gripping mixture of urban confessional and political manifesto, it not only inspired a generation of black activists, but drove home the bitter realities of racism to a mainstream white liberal audience.

As Muhammad's leading minister, Malcolm X rejected the civil rights movement, labelled Dr King a "house Negro", and formed liaisons with the Ku Klux Klan and the American Nazi party — organisations that he found preferable to mainstream political parties.

His father was a Baptist preacher and follower of Marcus Garvey. Reaching into Malcolm's troubled youth, it traces a path from his parents' activism as followers of Marcus Garvey through his own work with the Nation of Islam and rise in the world of black nationalism, and culminates in the never-before-told true story of his assassination.

He also sharpened his forensic skills by participating in debate classes. It documents his disillusionment with and departure from the Nation of Islam in Marchhis pilgrimage to Meccawhich catalyzed his conversion to orthodox Sunni Islamand his travels in Africa.
