Manning Marable, RIP

Manning Marable, a prolific historian and essayist, died yesterday. His passing is particularly sad because he did not live to see the publication of his long awaited biography of Malcolm X, which will happen on Monday and will inevitably change the way we think of his subject.

The NY Times article outlining the content of the book leaves me speechless.

I'm definitely looking forward to reading the book. I'm sure it will be groundbreaking.

Bought it over the weekend and can't wait to read it. Would have loved to have heard Marable discuss it in person.
