Among the national black leaders who emerged in the early 1960’s was Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little in Omaha in 1925. After a difficult early life that included a prison sentence, Malcolm X reformed and converted to the Islamic religion. Under his later Muslim name, El Hajj Malik El Shabazz, he led the battle for black unity, pride and self determination. Although an assassin’s bullet cut short his life in 1965, Malcolm X helped establish an awareness of black culture and power in the 1960’s.
