Some brief overview of book

Betty Before X is a powerful middle-grade fictionalized account of the childhood activism of Betty Shabazz, Malcolm Xs wife, written by their daughter Ilyasah Shabazz. In Detroit, 1945, eleven-year-old Bettys house doesnt quite feel like home. She believes her mother loves her, but she cant shake the feeling that her mother doesnt want her.

Church helps those worries fade, if only for a little while. The singing, the preaching, the speeches from guest activists like Paul Robeson and Thurgood Marshall stir African Americans in her community to stand up for their rights. Betty quickly finds confidence and purpose in volunteering for the Housewives League, an organization that supports black-owned businesses.

Soon, the American civil rights icon we now know as Dr. Betty Shabazz is born. Inspired by Betty's real lifebut expanded upon and fictionalized through collaboration with novelist Renée WatsonIlyasah Shabazz illuminates four poignant years in her mothers childhood with this book, painting an inspiring portrait of a girl overcoming the challenges of self-acceptance and belonging that will resonate with young readers today. Backmatter included.

The result is a heart-rending imagining of Shabazz's personal challenges as well as a rare, intimate look at the complex roots of the American civil rights movement. A personal, political and powerful imagining of the early life of the late activist." Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Absorbing .
