The Autobiography of Malcolm X
- As Told to Alex Haley
- By: Malcolm X, Alex Haley
- Narrated by: Laurence Fishburne
- Length: 16 hrs and 52 mins
Experience a bold take on this classic autobiography as it’s performed by Oscar-nominated Laurence Fishburne. In this searing classic autobiography, originally published in 1965, Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, firebrand, and Black empowerment activist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Human Rights movement. His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American dream and the inherent racism in a society that denies its non-White citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues of our own time.

Powerful, timely performance of a classic
I first read 'The Autobiography of Malcolm X' as a young person years ago. I learned so much from the extraordinary life and contribution of Malcolm X in the modern world. Listening to this audiobook some twenty years later is a timely reminder of that work, with layers and lessons for every kind of audience. Fishburne delivers a moving, emotional narrative that I imagine Malcolm would have been very proud of. Thank you for this work. In a world of increasing divisiveness and misunderstanding, it is a light for us. I hope it benefits many hearts and communities around the planet.
