May 11, 2011 – Hour 2

Join us for the second part of our tribute to Manning Marable, the brilliant scholar who passed away just days before his groundbreaking new biography of Malcolm X was published last month. Manning was scheduled to speak about Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention, which seeks to redefine Malcolm’s legacy in many ways, at the Enoch Pratt Library in Baltimore, and so to honor his life and work we put together a panel of other leading thinkers to discuss the new insights on Malcolm X’s life that he broght to light.

The panelists are:

Michael Eric Dyson, host of the Michael Eric Dyson show right here on WEAA

Melissa Harris-Perry, Professor of Politics and African American Studies at Princeton University

Sherrilyn Ifill, Professor of Law at the University of Maryland School of Law

Lester Spence, Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University
