The Political Legacy of Malcolm X is not only an easy read, but the sources are so in-depth that, if studied, will enable the reader to understand the political context in which Malcolm functioned. T'Shaka pulls no punches in this incredibly straightforward work, and this book should be a staple text for all black studies departments, alongside such works as Karenga's Introduction to Black Studies and Lafontant's Understanding a Culture. I know Mr. T'Shaka personally, during my days as a member of the Pan-Afrikan Secretariat. No one is more dedicated to organizing the black masses than T'Shaka, who had already written an immense volume on the development of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE). As a speaker, he has few peers, but what is important here is that once again, we find the warrior using his commitment to the people to do more than orate and philosophize; T'Shaka, like Newton, Karenga, and others, is an incredibly gifted writer and this book is a testimony to those gifts.
