This paper offers a short examination of Malcolm X's life through a study of Haley's biography of the man. It looks at his childhood and how his background helped him become one of the leading civil-rights leaders African-Americans have ever known. Includes quotes from the text.

From the Paper:

"The first component of Malcolm X's life and perspective can be traced to his childhood, as he went by the name of Malcolm Little. Young Malcolm was the son of a Baptist preacher and a follower of Marcus Garvey. He was raised in a hostile environment and observed the strong hatred of white racists towards his family. Alex Haley named the chapter of Malcolm's childhood "Nightmare." The traumatic childhood experiences and the murder of his father by whites made it possible that Malcolm later believed the white man an incarnation of the devil."
