As his father was a minister and activist who was working hard on spreading his message, the family was threatened by the members of the Ku Klux Klan, who stated that he was ‘’spreading trouble’’, thus the family had to move to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and after that to Lansing, Michigan. Earl ended up being shot when Malcolm was only six years old, and Louise was put in a mental hospital when Malcolm was 13 years old, after having a breakdown when left by her then-partner.

Over the course of seven years, from the age of 14 until 21, Malcolm had plenty of jobs with his half-sister, Ella Little-Collins. When he grew up, Malcolm moved to Flint, Michigan and after that to Harlem, a neighborhood of New York, where he engaged in racketeering, robbery and drug dealing, among other criminal activities. Besides that, he engaged in sexual activities with other men, for money. During this time, he became friends with John Elroy Sanford, and the two of them aspired to become comedians, which Sanford ultimately succeeded in, becoming Redd Foxx. Spending time in prison, Malcolm discovered The Nation of Islam, the organization which believed that all black people should return to Africa, where they would be free from white dominance. Additionally, his brother Reignald told him to stop eating pork and quit cigarettes,  and so he became a Muslim, even though he was known as Satan prior to becoming religious.

In 1948, Malcolm began writing to Elijah Muhammad, who told him to pray to Allah and never again engage in problematic or destructive behavior, and after his parole in 1952, Little visited Muhammad, subsequently becoming an assistant minister of the Nation’s Temple Number One. In the upcoming period, he moved upward on the ladder in the mentioned ministry, and by the end of the ‘50s, he had changed his name to Malcolm Shabazz or Malik el-Shabazz, however, he was still better known as Malcolm X. In 1959, he was featured in a television report about the Nation of Islam, entitled ‘’The Hate That Hate Produced’’, and throughout the following years, he continued teaching about his beliefs and was ultimately seen as the second most influential leader of the Nation of Islam. He ultimately left The Nation, and founded a religious organization – Muslim Mosque, Inc. – and a secular group named the Organization of Afro-American Unity that advocated Pan-Africanism, both seen as rivals to The Nation.

In 1964, he went on a pilgrimage to Mecca, which is obligatory for every Muslim individual, but in the following year, he was convinced that Nation of Islam, which he had previously left, was going to kill him; eventually, during a meeting Malcolm was shot in the chest, murdered by three members of the Nation, who were subsequently sentenced to life in jail.

In his private life, Malcolm X was married to Betty Shabazz, whom he met at one of his lectures. However, due to the Nation’s teachings, they weren’t supposed to be seeing each other in private, thus they had to spend time while surrounded others. They married in 1958, and the couple had six daughters.

1[In 1963, on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy] Chickens coming home to roost never did make me sad, they've always make me glad.
2[Speech at the Harvard Law School Forum on December 16, 1964] I believe in the brotherhood of all men, but I don't believe in wasting brotherhood on anyone who doesn't want to practice it with me. Brotherhood is a two-way street.
3I have less patience with someone who doesn't wear a watch than with anyone else, for this type is not time-conscious. In all our deeds, the proper value and respect for time determines success or failure.
4[Speech in New York City on February 19, 1965] It is a time for martyrs now, and if I am to be the one, it will be for the cause of brotherhood. That's the only thing that can save this country.
5[Speech in Los Angeles on June 3, 1962 upon learning of a plane crash] The death of over 120 white people is a very beautiful thing.
6I am not a racist. I am against every form of racism and segregation, every form of discrimination. I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color.
7When I was born, I was black. When I grow up, I'm black. When I'm ill, When I die, I'm black. But you - When you're born, you're pink. When you grow up, you're white. When you're ill, you're green. When you go out in the sun, you go red. When you're cold, you go blue. When you die, you're purple. And you have the nerve to call me Colored?
8I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone, and those who want to continue the system of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don't believe it will be based on the color of the skin...
9[Speech in New York City on December 12, 1964] I believe in the brotherhood of man, all men, but I don't believe in brotherhood with anybody who doesn't want brotherhood with me. I believe in treating people right, but I'm not going to waste my time trying to treat somebody right who doesn't know how to return the treatment.

5His adopted surname, "X", was in reference to his ancestor's original African surname, which he felt his ancestors had been robbed of by being forced into slavery, and, therefore, by extension, he had been robbed of it as well.
6Brother of Ella Collins, Wilfred X and Philbert X.
7His most famous quote, "by any means necessary", was derived from Italian theorist Niccolò Machiavelli's "The Prince".
8During his early adulthood, he and a close friend were both noted for their reddish brown hair which subsequently led to their both being called by the nickname "Red". In an attempt to distinguish these two men with identical nicknames, their associates prefaced the nickname "Red" with cities these two men had frequented. Subsequently, Malcolm X became known as "Detroit Red", and his friend - a local dishwasher - was called "Chicago Red"; "Chicago Red" later become famous as the comedian known to the world as Redd Foxx.
9Had six daughters: Attallah (born 1958), Qubilah (born 1960), Ilyasah (born 1963), Gamilah (born 1964) and twins Malaak and Malikah (born 1965).
