In the 1950s and 1960s, Malcolm X challenged America to face the truth of its prejudice toward its African American citizens. Born in poverty in Lansing Michigan, he fell into a life of petty crime, until he discovered the Black Muslim religion in jail. Eventually, he turned his life around, continued to seek teachers, and instructed others too. His influence continues to be felt around the world.
