BOOK OF THE WEEK: WEEK TWENTY-TWO, 2011
Manning Marable, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention (New York Viking, 2011) ("My primary purpose in this book is to go beyond the legend: to recount what actually occurred in Malcolm's life. I also present the facts that Malcolm could not know, such as the extent of illegal FBI and New York Police Department surveillance and acts of disruption against him, the truth about those among his supporters who betrayed him politically and personally, and the identification of those responsible for Malcolm's assassination." Id. at 12).
