Malcolm X’s Daughters Upset about Marable Biography

April 7, 2011  |  

Two of Malcolm X’s daughters, Ilyasah and Malaak Shabazz, are not happy about the newly released biography, “Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention”.

The book,  written by the now deceased scholar, Manning Marable, claims that the marriage between Malcolm and Betty was strained and that one or both of them was unfaithful.

Ilyasah and Malaak, who’ve said they have not read the book yet, are not pleased with this portrayal of their parents.  They assert that their parents’ marriage was a loving one

The book, which took Marable 20 years to complete, is composed of government documents, private papers and thousands of interviews; but, did not include any input from these two daughters.
