A Rebel's Guide to Malcolm X

Issue section: 
Author: 

This book is a celebration of Malcolm X’s legacy: his uncompromising championing of black pride and the right to self defence; his revolutionary opposition to capitalism; his relatable and inspiring oratory talent; and his militant and tireless organising in poor black communities.

As the Black Lives Matter movement brings the fight against racist police brutality to the forefront of struggle in the US, the ideas and iconic symbol of Malcolm X and the Black Panther Party are re-entering public consciousness.

Send My Love and a Molotov Cocktail! presents an eclectic anthology of short stories ranging from science fiction adventures to historical snapshots, united by themes of revolt, riots, revolution and crime. Jumping from 1970s Californian campus struggles, to a surreal future Paris, to the New York of the Great Depression makes the collection an exciting and colourful one, while the common threads of oppression and resistance give a sense of the adaptability and persistence of human struggles against injustice and hardship.
