Talks at the Schomburg: Revisiting Alex Haley’s Autobiography of Malcolm X

February 21, 2019 - 6:30 am - 8:30 pm

The Schomburg’s recently-acquired manuscripts of The Autobiography of Malcolm X include handwritten corrections and notes between Malcolm X and Alex Haley, and the full, unpublished chapter titled “The Negro.” Following personal exploration into the manuscripts, scholars will discuss these revelatory materials, and how they may shape a more authentic and accurate understanding of Malcolm X as a political thinker and pioneer of Black liberation philosophy.
