Description
A powerful fictionalized account of Malcolm X's adolescent years in jail written by his daughter along with a 2019 Coretta Scott King-John Steptoe Award-winning author. No one can be at peace until he has his freedom. In Charlestown Prison, Malcolm Little struggles with the weight of his past. Plagued by nightmares, he drifts through days unsure of his future. Slowly, he befriends other prisoners and writes to his family. He reads all the books in the prison library, joins the debate team and the Nation of Islam. Malcolm grapples with race, politics, religion, and justice in the 1940s. And as his time in jail comes to an end, he begins to awaken--emerging from prison more than just Malcolm Little: Now, he is Malcolm X. Here is an intimate look at Malcolm X's young adult years. While this book chronologically follows X: A Novel (Candlewick), it can be read as a standalone historical novel that invites larger discussions on structural racism, prison reform, and civil rights.
