Born in 1962, Ilyasah Shabazz was only two years old when her father, Malcolm X, was assassinated. After the tragedy, her mother was determined to protect her daughters from the harsh glare of the media. This is Shabazz's unforgettable account of her experiences, from childhood to college graduation. Here is a young woman carrying on the legacy of a renowned father and indomitable mother, forged by the memory of her parents' love, the meaning of their cause, and the power of their faith. Featuring reminiscences of friends, colleagues and acquaintances such as Coretta Scott King, Muhammed Ali, and Spike Lee, GROWING UP X is a fascinating, first-ever look at a family many have admired from afar, yet never seen up close.
