Malcolm X Revisited: I find Malcolm X's life endlessly interesting maybe the MOST interesting of the black liberation and nationalist movement's advocates. I only wish Professor Marable lived to comment on his new book as according to the NYT, the Malcolm X biographer died on eve of his revealing work.

For anyone who may be interested, I link below the NYT story about the author and his exhaustive study in his book on Malcolm X's life. It upends many of the preconceived notions of Malcolm. The book is entitled “Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention,” by Columbia University professor Manning Marable. I will add it to my reading list and compilation of 1/2 read texts which somehow I never finish.
