A Marked Man: The Assassination of Malcolm X by Doeden - ESSENTIAL

Doeden. Matt A Marked Man: The Assassination of Malcolm X, 82 p. Twenty-First Century (Lerner), 2013.  $25.00.  Content: PG (the assassination and it does mention that Malcolm’s grandmother was raped by a white man).  

From Malcolm’s beginnings and the events that shaped, through the assassination and on to the aftermath – including a discussion of how the men who were charged with the crime may not have been the perpetrators.  Any student who combined this with Malcolm’s autobiography would have a wealth of material for a research project.
