I give Malcolm X incredible props for tackling something he wanted to do and sticking at it even when he had hard times. I feel that Malcolm X’s “turtles” were reading and writing. These two subjects kept him busy and made his prison time fly by. His ability to jump into education, and not stop until he conquered his flaws make him a great role model to follow. Although he was in prison, he used him time constructively and learned skills which he could take with him throughout the rest of his life. I wish that I was as focused and determined as Malcolm. What do you guys think?
