Description :  <b><b>Now available as an eBook for the very first time! •&#xa0;</b>ONE OF <i>TIME</i>’S TEN MOST IMPORTANT NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY</b><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br />In the searing pages of this classic autobiography, originally published in 1964, Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, firebrand, and anti-integrationist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement. His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism in a society that denies its nonwhite citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues of our own time. <i>The Autobiography of Malcolm X </i>stands as the definitive statement of a movement and a man whose work was never completed but whose message is timeless. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand America.<br />&#xa0;<br /> <b>Praise for <i>The Autobiography of Malcolm X</i></b><br /> <i>&#xa0;</i><br />“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.”<b>—Barack Obama, <i>Dreams from My Father</i></b><br /><br />“Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book.”<b>—<i>The New York Times</i></b><br /> <i>&#xa0;</i><br /> “A great book . . . Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth.”<b>—<i>The Nation</i></b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;</i></b><br />“The most important book I’ll ever read, it changed the way I thought, it changed the way I acted. It has given me courage I didn’t know I had inside me. I’m one of hundreds of thousands whose lives were changed for the better.”<b>—Spike Lee</b><br />&#xa0;<br />“This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle.”<b>—I. F. Stone</b>

2 The End of White World Supremacy

Author : Malcolm X
Genre :  Social Science  Books  Nonfiction  History 
Release Date :  2019-01-01
Description :  The classic collection of major speeches, now bundled with a CD of Malcolm X delivering two of them. Malcolm X remains a touchstone figure for black America and in American culture at large. He gave African Americans not only their consciousness but their history, dignity, and a new pride. No single individual can claim more important responsibility for a sociological and historical leap forward such as the one sparked in America in the sixties. When, in 1965, Malcolm X was gunned down on the stage of a Harlem theater, America lost one of it eminent political thinkers. The End of White World Supremacy contains four major speeches by Malcolm X, including: "Black Man's History," "The Black Revolution," "The Old Negro and the New Negro," and the famous "The Chickens Are Coming Home to Roost" speech ("God's Judgment of White America"), delivered after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. This new edition bundles with the book an audio download of Malcolm's stirring delivery of "Black Man's History" in Harlem's Mosque No.7 and "The Black Revolution" in the Abyssinian Baptist Church.
