Malcolm X was a civil rights leader. He was the fourth of eight children, was constantly harassed by the KKK, and quit school. For education he visited West Junior High School. Other than a civil rights leader he was a minister. His most notable work was his auto biography. His movement works were African American Rights and The Nation of Islam. He believed that African Americans deserved equal rights and believed that violence was a possible answer to problems. He died on February 21 1965 by getting shot fifteen times.
