This paper discusses how Anne Moody, a young woman in Mississippi, and Malcolm X, a former prisoner and convert to Islam in the North, were part of the movement that realized that blacks in the United States needed to develop a positive identity for themselves, or they would always be below white society in terms of economics and perception.
From the Paper:"Black writers of both fiction and non-fiction in the 20th were instrumental in the civil rights movement that culminated in the 1960's. Black literature since the first accounts of slaves has provided scholars with an accurate portrayal of black life in America; typically blacks would write in the form of an autobiography or a fictionalized autobiography to escape ridicule. Whether in the Jim-Crowe afflicted communities in the south or the ghettos of the urban north, black people were outside American society prior to the 1960's. This situation was considered immutable by blacks early in the 20th century, but later, better-educated blacks stepped forward in the 1950's and 1960's and started a protest movement designed to foster inclusively."
