Dr. Manning Marable: Author (May 13, 1950 - April 1, 2011)
Dr. Manning Marable was one of America’s most influential and widely read scholars. Since 1993, Dr. Marable had been Professor of Public Affairs, Political Science, History and African-American Studies at Columbia University in New York City. For ten years, Dr. Marable was the founding director of the Institute for Research in African-American Studies at Columbia University, from 1993 to 2003. Under Dr. Marable’s leadership, the Institute became one of the nation’s most prestigious centers of scholarship on the black American experience. In 2002, Dr. Marable established the Center for Contemporary Black History (CCBH) at Columbia, an advanced research and publications center that examines black leadership and politics, culture and society. CCBH has been home to a number of scholarly projects, including the ongoing Malcolm X Project (MXP), which serves as the foundation for this blog and his posthumous biography, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention.
