THE AWAKENING OF MALCOLM X

by | Read by Landon Woodson

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

In this fictionalized biography of Malcom X's young adult life, written by his daughter, narrator Landon Woodson brings deep emotion to a man whose youth was fraught with injustice. Woodson transitions smoothly between Malcom's childhood/teens and his early 20s, evoking both the desperation and hope of a young Black man who could no longer stand for the unjust treatment of his people. Through vivid depictions of his brutal incarceration and the historically accurate use of racial slurs, Woodson expresses the emotions of men who were treated unjustly, bringing their shared humanity to the forefront. An interview with Shabazz and Woodson at the end of the audiobook provides added perspective to both story and narration. H.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
