El Hajj Malik El Shabazz, also known as Malcolm X, is one of my heroes and a personal touchstone while navigating life as an African American Muslim. In honor of Black History Month, I recommend the book, Malcolm X: Make It Plain by William Strickland and edited by Cheryll Greene. The photographs alone make this book a special keepsake, but the oral histories and commentary provided provide a context of El Hajj Malik El Shabazz’s life that paints an honest picture of this noble, brilliant man.
