Quinton Boughton Malcolm X “By any means necessary.” This is a famous quote from El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, also known  as Malcolm Little, but better known as Malcolm X. This is a man who is known by many different  names, some including ‘Detroit Red’ and ‘Malachi Shabazz,’ but who is more widely known for  his significant impact on the Civil Rights Movement. I have studies Malcolm X a little bit in high  school as well as some in middle school, so I am somewhat familiar with his works and doings.  Today I will inform you about Malcolm Little, Malcolm X, and El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz all of who  make up the Malcolm X who is commonly known. Malcolm Little was born on May 19, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska to Earl Little and Louise Helen.  He was the 7 th  of 11 children, having 3 step and 8 full siblings. From the beginning, Malcolm  Little was faced with many hard times. Even before he was born, while his mother was pregnant  with him, his family was threatened to move by Klan members. The family relocated to Lansing,  Michigan in 1926. Then in 1931, his father was murdered. After her husband’s death, Malcolm’s  mother, Louise, had a nervous breakdown and was later declared legally insane. After this,  Malcolm and his siblings were split up into different foster homes. This was sort of a turning  point in his life, and Malcolm’s radical and extreme tendencies begun. He dropped out of school  and was eventually sent to a detention center. After leaving the detention center, he moved a  couple times, finally ending up in Boston. He became involved in gambling, drug dealing, and

    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.
