Throughout history there have been many people who have stood out and made an impact in the way we think and comprehend things. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, Malcolm X was no exception. His militant views that Western nations were inherently racist and that black people must join together to build their own society and value system had an important influence on black nationalist and black separatist movements of the 1950s and 1960s. At the beginning of the movie, Malcolm X was born Malcolm Little. He was a young child trying to adapt to societys changes. He was looking so hard that he fell into the wrong crowd.
