Malcolm X remains one of the most known left wing activists not only of his time but also today He is measured to be one of the liveliest Black Nationalist leaders of our country and a symbol of the power of the black community Malcolm X saw a need for a dramatic fundamental and structural change However many of the aspects that he wanted to change he believed he had no control over One large opposition Malcolm pursued was the ending of capitalism Through his life there were many struggles for what he believed was freedom Malcolm X was born on May 19 1925 in Omaha Nebraska to Earl and Louise Little African-American pride was rooted deeply in Malcolms family Earl was a positive independent Georgia Baptist Minister and an organizer for Marcus Garveys Universal Negro Improvement Association a back to Africa group in the 20s Before his death in 1931 Malcolms father influenced his life greatly He taught him to always have pride in himself and his race His mother was BI-racial and the shame of her white grandfather led her to strive to influence her children to value their race After the death of her husband she was institutionalized from 1937 to 1963 due to a mental breakdown However instead of teaching him to value others races he was taught to hate the whole race and began to blame them for all of his problems He was a ghetto hustler dope peddler bootlegger a pimp and a pickpocket All of this was in his teen years but only because he was manipulated by the w hite man In 1946 at the age of 21 Malcolm was sentenced to ten years in prison for burglary and suddenly whether or not it was racial injustice no longer mattered He was in prison He also realized his lack in education and began not necessarily to change his opinions of whites but to become more educated
