In Malcolm X’s biography, “Learning to Read”, Malcolm was not well educated during his life until he spent seven years in prison and educated himself. “I saw that the best thing I could do was get hold of a dictionary – to study, to learn some words.” (X 1). This quotation explains what Malcolm X did while in prison; he educated himself by learning words from the dictionary, then he reads books about people, places and events in history.
