The section of The Autobiography of Malcom X called Harlemite, is about the time in 1942 when Malcolm gains employment at a bar in Harlem. It is here that he gains an 'education' in the dark underbelly alive and well in Harlem. He learns the names and faces of the gangsters, the pimps, and the other criminals frequenting the neighborhood and the bar. He meets one in particular, Sammy the Pimp, who becomes his best friend and tells him about the history of Harlem.
