Publisher's Summary

When Malcolm X was assassinated at 39, his book nearly died with him. Today The Autobiography of Malcolm X — a favorite of President Obama and Justice Clarence Thomas alike — stands as a milestone in America’s struggle with race. The Autobiography is also a Horatio Alger tale, following a man’s journey from poverty to crime to militancy to wisdom. Muslims look to Malcolm as a figure of tolerance; a tea party activist claims him for the Right; Public Enemy’s Chuck D tells us, "This book is like food. It ain’t McDonalds — it’s sit down at the table and say grace." [Broadcast Date: September 25, 2010]

Not an Audiobook, but a Waste of Time!

Would you try another book from Kurt Andersen and/or the narrator?

Wanted to use this for in class reading with my students and was really disappointed! It is simply a public television show featuring different people commenting on their perceptions of the book.Please do not give them your ninety five cents, because they were not upright in their description of this audio download.
