Malcolm X: His Ideas and His Killers w/ Karl Evanzz and Zak Kondo
As we said recently, Karl Evanzz’s review of Manning Marable’s Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention, which had originally been set for publication in TheRoot.com, was in fact rejected. The Washington Post followed up with TheRoot.com, both of which are properties of The Washington Post Co., to find that its editor-in-chief Henry Louis Gates, Jr. had no involvement in the decision and that we had been engaged in “dueling appraisals” of Marable’s work. Indeed. Today Evanzz joined us live and another notable Malcolm X researcher Zak Kondo joined us via taped-interview. We aired Kondo’s interview in segments but it can be heard in its mostly un-edited version below. Evanzz briefly explained his theory of the assassination of Malcolm X [where he also referenced THIS VIDEO and THIS VIDEO], his concerns with Marable’s book and even some mistakes in his own research. Kondo also summarized his theory of the assassination, some of his issues with Marable’s book and, most importantly, his thoughts on who Malcolm X was politically and ideologically. Kondo also importantly discussed what he would like to see happen now regarding the alleged lone-surviving assassin. All of this plus Head-Roc on Giant food store’s abuse of labor Washington, D.C.
