On this episode (in two parts) we continue our discussion of Malcolm X’s life and history with Professor Bill Strickland who teaches Political Science in the W.E.B. Du Bois department of Afro-American Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. We discussed aspects of the late Manning Marable’s Book, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention, as well as Malcolm’s time in Roxbury and some of the difficulties he faced trying to establish the Muslim Mosque Incorporated and the Organization of Afro-American Unity. Professor Strickland is a founding member of the independent black think tank, the Institute of the Black World. Strickland was a consultant to both series of the prize-winning documentary on the civil rights movement, Eyes on the Prize , and the senior consultant on the PBS documentary, Malcolm X : Make It Plain. He also wrote the companion book. Most recently, Professor Strickland was a consultant on the Louis Massiah film on W.E.B. Du Bois: W.E.B. Du Bois : A Biography in Four Voices.
