  • Manning Marable on "Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention"

    Marable

    Today we spend the hour examining the life of Malcolm X — one of the most influential political figures of the 20th century. Saturday would have been his 82nd birthday. We broadcast excerpts of Malcolm X in his own words and speak to Columbia University professor Manning Marable, who is working on a major biography titled, "Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention" to be published in 2009. Marable is the founding director of the Institute for Research in African-American Studies at Columbia University. [includes rush transcript]
