Teaching Malcolm X.
Perry, Theresa, Ed.
"The Autobiography of Malcolm X" continues to sell and to be read by Americans of all ethnic backgrounds, but for African American youth it has special meaning and can be seen as providing a powerful argument in favor of becoming literate. The selections in this collection explore teaching about Malcolm X and give educators the tools they need to integrate discussions about Malcolm X into discussions of history, politics, race, and culture. The selections included: (1) "Malcolm X: Make It Plain. The Documentary and Book as Educational Materials" (Judy Richardson and James Turner); (2) "'Forming the Habit of Seeing for Ourselves, Hearing for Ourselves, and Thinking for Ourselves.'
