Join the the discussion on one of history’s most influential and controversial figures of twentieth-century American history as we welcome the editor of The Diary of Malcolm X, Herb Boyd.

The diary is part of the collection of Malcolm X’s papers that his daughters loaned to the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, a division of the New York Public Library. It is the private journal kept by the human rights leader during 1964, a year that included his pilgrimage to Mecca and two trips to Africa.


“From the pages of his Diary, we hear his voice distilled and pure, devoid of outside interference, manipulation or intent. With his Diary, the entire world can now accurately assess the value, contribution and magnitude of Malcolm X.”


-Ilyasah Shabazz, daughter of Malcolm X
