"Malcolm X: The Great Photographs" (Stewart Tabori & Chang, 1993)

The face of Malcolm X (1925-1965) has become a cultural icon. Depending on who is looking, his image conjures up various men: moral leader, black separatist leader, Black Muslim teacher, radical leader, pan-Africanist leader, pioneer in the spread of orthodox Islam. Malcolm X: The Great Photographs is an extensively researched collection of historical photographs of Malcolm X beginning with his childhood and focusing on the critical years 1959 to 1965, when he was in the public eye. The photographs, arranged chronologically, tell the story of Malcolm's mature life.

Acclaimed writer Thulani Davis narrates these events and includes in her story the voices of activists whose lives were changed by contact with him. In an essay of astonishing breadth, Davis examines Malcolm's ideas and myths to find out why popular culture has so energetically laid claim to his image. Pictures from many of the great photographers of the time - including Gordon Parks, Eve Arnold, and Henri Cartier-Bresson - document Malcolm X's work as a teacher, militant, orator, and family man. A detailed chronology shows Malcolm's life set against the backdrop of U.S. and international political events, especially the independence of African nations. Through its pictures and text, Malcolm X: The Great Photographs offers unparalleled insight into the life of a major historical figure whose ideas and inspiration challenge a new generation
