Professor Bernstein Writing 1 October 7, 2015 Part A: 1. Summary: Malcolm X’s autobiography Saved is a distinct recollection of his experiences in prison with expanding his vocabulary, writing, and as a result, obtaining necessary information that unfolds his identity and ancestral history. Whilst transitioning to the Nation of Islam he writes to Elijah Muhammed, to which he learns that the first men and the great early civilizations were African, and how white society forced black men into lives of crime by keeping them ignorant and destitute.The horror of slavery and the bold nineteenth-century revolts of Nat Turner and John Brown impact him deeply. The prison’s debate program introduces Malcolm to public speaking, which teaches him rhetorical skills he later uses to earn converts to the Nation of Islam. Malcolm resolves to devote the rest of his life to telling the white man about himself or to die trying. 2. Most Interesting/Unusual/New Idea:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
