Critical Lives: Malcolm X will cover: the childhood of Malcolm Little in the Depression-era Midwest; the rise and fall of "Detroit Red"-Malcolm's chaotic adolescence as a petty criminal and street hustler; the prison years-the rebellious, angry, headstrong inmate they called Satan; Malcolm's religious and social allegiance with the Black Muslims (Nation of Islam); the founding and editing by Malcolm of the Nation of Islam (NOI) national newspaper; Malcolm as organizer, teacher, and political advocate-and Malcolm as husband and father; from Malcolm X to El-Hajj Malik El-Shabbazz-his attacks on the Civil Rights Movement and his break with the NOI; and the final year-the surveillance by the FBI and CIA, the assassination at the Audobon Ballroom.
