‘Here at last is the meticulous portrait he deserves’ – Andrew Anthony, Observer
‘Lucid, hugely researched and surely definitive … an extraordinary story’ – Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times
Manning Marable’s new biography is a stunning achievement, filled with new information and shocking revelations that will reframe the way we understand his life and work. Malcolm Xunfolds a sweeping story of the darkest days of racial unrest, from the rise of the Ku Klux Klan to the struggles of the civil rights movement, examining his engagement with the Nation of Islam, and the romantic relationships whose energy alternately drained him and pushed him to unimagined heights.
Manning Marable passed away days before the publication of his work Malcolm X, A Life of Reinvention for which he won the Pulitzer Prize for History. He taught at Columbria University, USA, and was one of the leading figures in African-American studies in the world.
