In Little X, Sonsyrea Tate reveals, through the acute vision and engaging voice of a curious child, the practices and policies of the mysterious organization most know only through media portrayals of its controversial leaders, Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X, and Louis Farrakhan. First published in 1997, Little X chronicles the multigenerational experience of Tate's family, who broke from the traditional black church in the 1950s to join the radical Nation of Islam, then struggled to remain intact through disillusionment, shifting loyalties, and forays into Orthodox Islam. Little X is also an absorbing story of a little girl whose strict Muslim education filled her with pride, confidence, and a longing for freedom; of a teenager in an ankle-length dress and headwrap, struggling to fit in with non-Muslim peers; and of a young woman whose growing disillusionment with the Nation finally led to her break with the Muslim religion.
Little X offers a rare glimpse into the everyday experience of the Nation of Islam and into a little-understood part of America's history and heritage.
Selected by the American Library Association as a Best Books for Young Adults. The book is published by The University of Tennessee Press.
