The latest book from acclaimed historian Professor Manning Marable, who died last week, insists that Malcolm X was at least bisexual and possibly gay.
Malcolm X – A Life of Reinvention claims that Malcolm X had an affair with a white businessman. This is not the first time it has been suggested in print that the revolutionary was attracted to men, however. A 1991 biography, Bruce Perry’s Malcolm X – The Life of a Black Man Who Changed Black America, made similar allegations.
Professor Manning was a black history expert who lectured at Columbia University.
