    Malcolmmarable5-21

    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]
