Summary "Using the Nation of Islam as a vehicle, but largely through his own dedication, energy, and intelligence Malcolm X became an indefatigable leader of African Americans during the 1960s. This expansive volume examines one of the most controversial and heroic figures of the 20th century. Over 500 essays discuss how Malcolm X affected the world in which he lived and how the influence of people, issues, and events shaped his development as an international figure." "With more than 70 contributors from black studies, history, political science, sociology, philosophy, education, journalism, and psychology, the Encyclopedia combines the knowledge of a precise group of writers. Addressing a major social, religious, and political figure through their own disciplines, these authors flesh out both the diversity and the complexity of the world that defined Malcolm X."--BOOK JACKET
