“A memoir that shows the private Malcolm as a man who spoke far more of obedience, moderation, and peace than he did of violence.”—Atlanta Journal & Constitution Many books have been written about Malcolm X in the decades since his assassination, but in Remembering Malcolm, his assistant minister Benjamin Karim reveals an intimately human side of the great leader we have never seen before. Writing with an insider’s knowledge and a disciple’s devotion, Karim paints an unforgettable portrait of Malcolm X as counselor, minister, healer, and, above all, a dedicated member of his community. Here is a dramatic account of how Malcolm galvanized the Black Muslims through his tireless work at Harlem’s New York Mosque Number Seven in the early 1960s. Here, too, are Karim’s affectionate memories of the daily rituals and beliefs that bound Malcolm’s people together—the courtship and marriage rites, the strict customs governing relations between men and women, the three-day fasts that ended in sumptuous sundown feasts, the rigorous discipline, and the quiet joys sanctioned by their faith. Remembering Malcolm is at once a beautiful memoir about a compelling human being and a vital historical document about one of the true American visionaries of the twentieth century.

The basis of the Netflix documentary BLOOD BROTHERS, the first book to bring to life the fateful friendship between Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali In 1962, boxing writers and fans considered Cassius Clay an obnoxious self-promoter, and few believed that he would become the heavyweight champion of the world. But Malcolm X, the most famous minister in the Nation of Islam, saw the potential in Clay, not just for boxing greatness, but as a means of spreading the Nation’s message. The two became fast friends, keeping their interactions secret from the press for fear of jeopardizing Clay’s career. Clay began living a double life—a patriotic “good negro” in public, and a radical reformer behind the scenes. Soon, however, their friendship would sour, with disastrous and far-reaching consequences. Based on previously untapped sources, from Malcolm’s personal papers to FBI records, Blood Brothers is the first book to offer an in-depth portrait of this complex bond. An extraordinary narrative of love and deep affection, as well as deceit, betrayal, and violence, this story is a window into the public and private lives of two of our greatest national icons, and the tumultuous period in American history that they helped to shape.
