Trinity Church Social Justice Discussion Group on Books About Racism
At our next meeting we will discuss The Autobiography of Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley.
"Extraordinary. A brilliant, painful, important book." New York Times “Malcolm X's searing memoir belongs on the small shelf of great autobiographies.” Wendy Smith, Amazon
“It’s not so much the book that changed my life as the book that saved my life. This autobiography does not just bear witness to racism. This is a book about humanity and human failings and how to rise through and beyond them.” The Guardian
“Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will.” Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father
“A great book . . . Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth.” The Nation
