Join Not Your Mother's Book Club as we read and discuss The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley. In June, we discussed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's Stride Toward Freedom: The Montgomery Story, and in August we will continue our discussion of African American leaders and American Civil Rights. Dr. King and Malcolm X were contemporaries with different life experiences and extremely different approaches to the Civil Rights struggle of the 1950s and 1960s. However, in the end they wanted the same thing and met the same fate.

The Autobiography of Malcolm X is an American journey that gives us a first-hand account of the thoughts and evolution of one of the most influential figures of the 20th Century. Join us as we discuss this important book and for what will surely be a great and timely discussion.
