Friendly Letter as Malcolm X (class research)

Friendly Letter as Malcolm X


Prompt: Malcolm X had major concerns about problems, issues or events that occurred during that period in which he lived. After studying one of these and his life, prepare a friendly letter written as if it were from Malcolm X to a specific audience, in which he discusses the problem related to the issue or event and some of the possible causes and suggests a solution. Both the problem and the solution must be consistent to his vision that includes actions and goals—and the historical period.
