Synopsis : A collection of photographs of Malcolm X, beginning with his childhood and focusing on the years 1959 to 1965, when he was in the public eye. Throughout his life, Malcolm X underwent many transformations: from junior high school class president to jazz-club shoeshine boy to railway worker to drug dealer. The photographs are from many of the great photographers of the time, including Gordan Parks, Eve Arnold and Henri Cartier-Bresson and document Malcolm X's work as a teacher, militant, orator and family man. The accompanying quotes are from writers, activists and ordinary people attesting to his impact in the 1960s.
From Library Journal:
This pictorial chronology of the life and work of Malcolm X spans the years from the 1919 marriage of his parents to 1966 sentencing of three men convicted of his murder. It is virtually impossible to capture the life and legacy of such a resplendent and mystifying individual in any one book, but this beautiful volume attempts to do just that and does it well. In the text, novelist Davis ( 1959 , Grove Weidenfeld, 1992 ), doesn't merely retell the story of Malcolm's life but tries to describe how phenomenal the man himself was. A picture speaks a thousand words, and this compilation of photographs from such noted photographers as Gordon Parks and Henri Cartier-Bresson speaks volumes about this man whose "face has become an omnipresent icon, a silent image attracting people." Davis's in-depth captions provide background and surrounding stories, although there are no printed records available for some of the events photographed. For those who already admire Malcolm X, this celebratory photo essay brings him to life; for those who still do not understand him, it will provide inspirational insights. Highly recommended for all collections.
