Reflection: The Story of Malcolm X.The following is found in your textbook on page 24 or in your eBook page 1-5b.  Please read the scenario and reflect upon by answering the questions at the end of the passage.As a young adult, Malcolm X found himself involved in a life of crime and drug addiction (X & Haley, 2001).
