Marable devoured every biography ever written on Malcolm X. However, the book that captivated Manning the most was the AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM X as told to ALEX HALEY. But years after the very first time of reading of the AUTOBIOGRAPY OF MALCOLM X in 1969, Manning Marable discovered several questionable holes within Malcolm X's life story.

Beyond the controversy and accusations of homosexuality, affairs, and egotism, Manning Marable's MALCOLM X peels back the layers of a man that changed America forever!
