What's In A Name? Understanding Malcolm X

With this engaging lesson on Malcolm X, student's will work collaboratively to evaluate four stages in the life of Malcolm X: the periods he was known as Malcolm Little, Detroit Red, Malcolm X, and el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz. Then they will consider how each name Malcolm X used reflected that period in his life and draw conclusions in a written essay about how his life experiences shaped Malcolm X and his legacy.
