Congratulations to Enslow author Jeff Burlingame on his NAACP Image Award nomination!

Jeff's book, Malcolm X: "I Believe in the Brotherhood of Man, All Men" has been nominated in the category of Outstanding Literary Work - Youth/Teens. Voting ends soon, and the awards ceremony will be held on Friday, March 4, 2011 on the FOX network.

Written for the high school reader, this biography describes how the segregation and discrimination that existed during Malcolm's life affected and changed him, and how he fought to end such practices. His outspoken nature gained him many followers and supporters, and just as many enemies.
