Marable’s Malcolm X biography wins Pulitzer prize

Press Release

Written by: Institute of Race Relations

To celebrate the fact that the late Manning Marable has been awarded the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for history for his ground-breaking book, Malcolm X – a life of reinvention, Race & Class makes available for free the seminal articles that Professor Marable wrote on the politics of the black working class in the US.

Manning Marable was for many years a member of the Editorial Working Committee of Race & Class and contributed to key discussions and conferences on racism and black struggles across the two continents. The magazine is delighted that his life’s work on Malcolm X has been publicly recognised, if, sadly, posthumously.

On Thursday 26 to Sunday 29 April, Columbia University, New York will be hosting the Manning Marable Conference, which features talks from Angela Davis and Mumia Abu Jamal. For the full line-up of speakers and themes, visit the event’s website.
