The Diary of Malcolm X: El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, 1964 by Herb Boyd (Editor), Ilyasah Al-Shabazz (Editor)
In 1964, Malcolm X made two trips to Africa and the Middle East. During those trips, he kept copious notes. This remarkable document, The Diary of Malcolm X El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, 1964, is comprised of those notes, along with editing, annotations, and commentary by editors Herb Boyd and Ilyasah Al-Shabazz. The Diary captures Malcolm X in all his comlexity, reveals some of his trepedations, and above all, reveals his humanity as he encounters a coterie of dignitaries, world leaders, and ordinary people who were mesmerized by his genius as he was in wonder of he often challenging new cultures he experienced from country to country.
