    I had admittedly modest expectations for this book but found myself pleasantly surprised I don't think Marable fully delivers on the book's subtitle ie explicitly making the case for why alternative interpretations of the black past and of America's racial history generally would impact contemporary struggles for justice Nevertheless the chapters on the popular de radicalization of Du Bois and on the legacy of Malcolm X were both insightful and potentially useful teaching texts In the former Marable shows how Du Bois's complex evolving thought and lengthy career have been popularly reduced to a few stock phrases from The Souls of Black Folk The chapter on Malcolm was particularly thought provoking Here Marable traces the influence of Alex Haley and Haley's politics in shaping the dominant image of Malcolm He goes on to illustrate how the lack of a unified accessible archive has subseuently hampered scholars' ability to re interpret the HaleySpike Lee driven narrative that so dramatically but Marable argues inaccurately emphasizes moments of stark and sudden conversion
