Malcolm X is one of the most controversial and complex leaders of the twentieth century. Even though Malcolm X converted to Islam in prison, most of Nation’s ideologies came from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, who was the leader of Nation and Malcolm’s spiritual father. Malcolm X was completely drawn to Nation and Muhammad’s teachings because of his past experience of racism as child and young adult. Muhammad’s ideology of race deeply impacted Malcolm X thought/views about the difference between the black and white man, and that the only way for both of them to move forward in society is by separating the two. Malcolm X used Islam as a powerful mechanism to encourage African-Americans to be self-efficient, self-motivated, and self-reliant.

The Nation Of Islam is an African American religious and political group, that at the time of Malcolm X spoke out against black oppression. Malcolm X came into contact with the group after several of his sibling wrote to him about the organization while he was in prison.

I wrote a letter telling them everything and they decided they no longer needed to see or talk to me. I had hoped they would be as accepting as his family,who had welcomed me with open arms, but being from an all white neighborhood that was not the case.
