San Diego County Third-Person Paragraph

Malcolm X was born Malcolm Little. By the time he was thirteen his father had died and mother was in a metal hospital. Growing up he lived in many foster homes. He was involved in criminal activities in Boston and New York. He was also, involved in the civil rights movement in the 60’s, the MLK movement. Even though he didn’t have his dad around for much of his life he was somehow influenced by him. He was proud to be black and proud of his roots. In prison he joined the Nation of Islam, 1952, after parole, and then became one of the leaders. He died young, 39. Malcolm was assassinated by a member of the Nation of Islam. Why, because he wasn’t “radical enough,” to start a war against the whites. He was basically about wanting rights for African Americans. People didn’t really agree with what he had to say, but we are all human, and he had the right to speak out.


  1. You know alot of about this and its good because you can speak out about what you know. I think your doing great. Keep it up.

  2. I am learning that you are really interested in history. Did you see the new Malcom X graphic novel in the back of the room?
