Transcript of "The Autobiographyof Malcom X"

  1. 1. THE AUTOBIGRAPHY OF MALCOM X. BY CAM MIMS.
  2. 2. SETTING: <ul><li>  THE STORY TAKES PLACE IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT ERA, WHERE RACIAL DISCRIMANTION WAS COMMON. THE STORY TAKES PLACE WHERE MALCOM WAS BORN IN OMAHA, NEBRASKA, LATER HE MOVED TO BOSTON WITH HIS SISTER AND NEW YORK WHERE HE JOINED THE NATION OF ISLAM. HOWEVER, HIS TRAVELS TO AFRICA AND MECCA, WHERE HE DID HIS MINISTRY </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>Malcom was a Nation of Islam minister, also a Black Nationalsit leader in the United States during the 1950's and 60's.
  3. 3. FACTS: <ul><li>  THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOM X WAS WRITTEN IN THE YEAR 1965. THE AUTHOR OF THIS BOOK WAS ALEX HALEY WHICH HALEY OFFERS A PERSPECTIVE OF MALCOM X AND HIS WORK. MOREOVER, THE GENRE OF THIS BOOK IS A BIOAGRAPHY, BUT IT WAS ALSO TO MANY A SOCIALOGICAL DOCUMENT. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  4. 4.   PLOT: <ul><li>  THE PLOT OF THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY SHOWS MALCOM X WAS BORN IN OMAHA, NEBRASKA, AND GREW UP WHERE DISCRIMNATION AND RACIAL VIOLENCE WAS AMONST WHERE HE LIVED. THUS, ONCE MOVING TO NEW YORK, HE WAS ENGAGED IN CRIMES. HENCE BEING IN PRISON HE TURNED HIS LIFE AROUND. SO HE BEGAN TO CONVERT HIMSELF TO THE NATION OF ISLAM. STILL IN PRISON HE FINALLY QUITS USING DRUGS AND BEGINS TO PRAY OFTEN AND STUDY VARIOUS LANGUAGES. MOREOVER, ONCE BEING RELEASED FROM PRISON MALCOM BEGANS TO BE ACTIVE IN THE TEMPLE OF THE NATION OF ISLAM. YET, HE ADOPTS THE PLACEHOLDER NAME &quot;X&quot; AS HIS LAST NAME, BECAUSE OF HIS LOST NAME OF HIS AFRICAN ANCESTORS. </li></ul>
  5. 5.   CHARACTERS: <ul><li>  THE CHARACTERS IN THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOM X ARE ELIJAH MUHAMMAD, WHO IS THE LEADER OF THE NATION OF ISLAM. SISTER BETTY, IS MALCOM'S WIFE, YET THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY DOES NOT DESCRIBE HER ROLL, THUS SHE GAVE BIRTH TO FIVE OF MALCOM'S CHILDREN. MOREOVER, SHORTY IS MALCOM'S FRIEND WHO GOT MALCOM INTO THAT LIFE OF CRIME, THEN YOU HAVE ELLA LITTLE WHO IS HIS HALF SISTER ON HIS FATHER SIDE. EARL LITTLE WAS MALCOM'S FATHER WHO WAS ASSACINATED FOR BLACK NATIONALIST IDEAS. LOUIS ELLA WAS MALCOM'S MOTHER WHO ENDURED GREAT DEPRESSION. </li></ul>
  6. 6. CHARACTERS: <ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>  Picture of Elijah Muhammad TO THE LEFT: MALCOM AND HIS WIFE SISTER BETTY AND THERE CHILDREN.
  7. 7. CONFLICT: <ul><li>  THE OPPOSTION MALCOM FACES THROUGH THE STORY WAS WHEN HE WAS YOUNG WHEN THEIR HOUSE WAS BURNED DOWN BOTH TIMES BY WHITE SUPREMACISTS. THUS, HIS MOTHER LOUISE WAS A WIDOW WHEN EARL LITTLE WAS MURDERED. MOREOVER, THE MOST SHOCKING INCINDENT TOOK PLACE WHEN MALCOM POINTED A REVOLOVER TO HIS HEAD IN FRONT OF THE CRIMINAL COHORTS, TO SHOW THAT HE WAS NOT AFRAID TO DIE. IN ADIITION, IN MARCH OF 1964, MALCOM TERMINATED HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE NATION OF ISLAM, DUE TO THE FACT THAT MUHAMMED HAD MULTIPLE RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE WOMEN OF THE NATION OF ISLAM, AND MALCOM FAITH CAME TO HAULT, AFTER FINDING OUT ABOUT THIS MATTER. </li></ul>
  8. 8.   THEME: <ul><li>AUTHOR ALEX HALEY MENTIONED IN A DOCUMENTARY &quot;EYES ON THE PRIZE&quot; THAT SHE FOUND THE BIOGRAPHY  ABOUT MALCOM X TO BE QUITE DIFFICULT BECAUSE MALCOM WANTED TO SIMPLY TALK ABOUT THE NATION OF ISLAM RATHER THAN HIMSELF. </li></ul><ul><li>  HOWEVER, I FEEL THAT THE REASON WHY ALEX HALEY DECIDED TO WRITE THIS BOOK ON MALCOM WAS TO MORE EMPHASIZE THE LIFE HE WAS ENGAGED IN AT A EARLY AGE TILL WHEN HE WAS SURROUNDED BY TENSION OF VIOLENCE AND THOSE MASSIVE DEATH THREATS UP IN TILL HIS ASSASSINATION. </li></ul>
  9. 9. MY OPINION: <ul><li>  I REALLY ENJOYED READING THIS BOOK. I BEGAN READING THIS BOOK AROUND EARLY JULY OF THIS YEAR, AND DIDN'T FINISH IT UNTIL EARLY OCTOBER. HOWVER, THERE WAS SO MUCH INFORMATION IN THE BOOK I DIDN'T GET ALL. MOREOVER, WHAT I GOT FROM THE BOOK WAS THAT MALCOM WAS IN MY OPINION WAS MORE PROBLEMATIC AND DESERVES THE FULLEST OF HONOR AND RESPECT. THUS, HE WAS ABLE TO DISSOLVE HIS RACIAL HATRED AND WHAT I ENJOYED THE MOST WHEN HE MADE HIS TRAVEL TO MECCA AND SAW ALL MUSLEMS OF ALL RACES COMING TOGETHER, HE BEGAN TO HAVE INTERCHANGE OF HEART, ON HOW HE VIEWED THINGS. IN CONCLUSION, AS A PERSON WHO NOW FULLY HAD A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF LIFE, AND TO VIOLENT DEATH, THIS BOOK IS SURELY A MASTERPIECE. </li></ul>
