Book Review: MALCOLM X by Walter Dean Myers

Much has been said about Malcolm X. Whatever you’ve heard about him please remember he was a constant learner who adjusted his ideas based upon his learnings.

His thirst for truth is evident from this biography which largely parallels Malcom X’s autobiography. As I read it drew me in wanting to do the same. His ideas shifted based upon the information he had at the moment. His information was constantly updated because of his commitment to truth and learning. He made major idea shifts brought enemies to his doorstep, literally.

We can grow our mind and character until our last breath. Malcolm X learned then shifted his ideas on vital topics. Never stick to one way when new information emerges. Like Malcolm X, live boldly based upon our current understandings.

Keep learning,
