Malcolm X

This case traces the life of Malcolm X, a leader of the Black Muslims
and a powerful voice for black pride, from his birth as Malcolm Little
in 1925 to his break with the Muslims in 1964.  It shows how his
philosophy was shaped by his long personal struggle from a childhood of
poverty and violence and a youth of crime to his achievement of
respectability through the Nation of Islam.  This is part of a series
of cases that illustrate the uses-of-history method of "placing
people"; it may be used in conjunction with Martin Luther King
(C1581365).  For further discussion of "placing people," see the
Vietnam Advisers abstract (C1482272).

Malcolm  X, 35pp, (C15-81-366.0)
