Guest Host: Susan Page

An auction house announced it will sell papers and other materials belonging to charismatic activist Malcolm X. But scholars say the papers must remain public because of their historic importance. A panel talks about the legal and cultural issues surrounding the fate of these papers, which offer insight into Malcolm X’s evolving thoughts on race, culture and society.

Guests

  • Karl Evanzz Washington Post news staff; author, "The Judas Factor: The Plot to Kill Malcolm X" (Thunder's Mouth)
  • Dr. Catherine Willimason director for fine books and manuscripts at Butterfield's, a West Coast auction house
  • James Early director of cultural heritage policy at the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage
