A new children’s book called Malcolm Little "The Boy Who Would Grow Up to Be Malcolm X" teaches kids about the civil rights leader’s boyhood. The book was written by Ilyasah Shabazz Malcolm’s daughter. She tells WDET’s Martina Guzman the book was a labor of love that required years of tracking down family and information. Malcolm was killed when Ilyasah was just two years old, but she says his presence was still felt in their home.
