"The publication of "The Diary of Malcolm X" is a great historical event in African American intellectual history. Composed of entries written between April 15 and November 17, 1964, a crucial transitional year in this great leader's religious, political and philosophical beliefs, the "Diary" affords us unmediated access to the quality of Malcolm's intellect and his keen sensivities as a cultural and social commentator, in compelling adn unadorned prose. . . . Every student of Malcolm X, and the history of Black political leadership, should read this compelling book."
