Assassinated just short of his fortieth birthday in 1965, Malcolm X battled the horrifying legacy of African American slavery throughout his short life. Malcolm's passage from troubled youth to influential, outspoken man and finally to tragic hero is captured in the drawings of award-winning graphic artist Randy Du Burke, and the history of the era is conveyed by Andrew Helfer, editor of two award-winning books.
