The great Lincoln, Montesquieu, and F. Douglass scholar Diana Schaub has a new essay out on Malcolm X, and the book on him by Marable Manning.

Comparisons with Frederick Douglass abound.

Diana would probably enjoy reading Charles Portis’s Masters of Atlantis , as I explain why in the linked post.
