> Malcolm X is one of the most multifaceted and controversial figures  
> in 20th century American history. Dr. Manning Marable's new  
> biography, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention (due for release in  
> March 2011), is a culmination of years of research and pursuit of  
> Malcolm's friends and enemies-many of whom have rarely or never  
> before spoken about him on the record. Filled with startling  
> revelations and new information from long-suppressed private and  
> government files, it presents a complete picture of Malcolm who, had  
> he lived, would now be in his eighties.
>
> A historian, radical social theorist, and political activist for  
> more than three decades, Dr. Marable is one of America's most  
> prominent progressive intellectuals. Marable has produced 15 books,  
> 13 edited volumes, and over 400 articles in academic journals and  
> encyclopedias. Most notably, his book The Crisis of Color and  
> Democracy was awarded the Book of the Year by the Gustavus Myers  
> Center for the Study of Human Rights. Dr. Marable is also a frequent  
> commentator on public policy issues and U.S. racial history for  
> numerous media outlets including CNN, BBC, and the History Channel.
>
> A reception will take place in the atrium of the Chapel after the  
> lecture. The first 200 attendees will receive a free bookplate of  
> Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention. Dr. Marable will be on hand to  
> sign bookplates following the lecture.
>
> A donation of $3 for the general public and $1 for students will be  
> suggested at the door. Tickets can also be purchased at the Common  
> Market in Wilson Commons. There is no online registration available
