Dr. Scot Brown, author of Fighting For US, invited me to discuss A Lie of Reinvention: Correcting Manning Marable’s Malcolm X with one of his classes at UCLA.  Dr. Brown’s class is studying the historiography of Malcolm X and our book is included in that mix.  The discussion became a truly interesting one that engaged questions of the politics of historiography, including what may be the potential impact of the current political moment on that body of knowledge.
