P&P Live!: Tamara Payne — The Dead Are Arising: The Life of Malcolm X - with Joe Davidson

Upcoming Event
Friday, October 23, 2020 - 4:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

Join Tamara Payne, Les Payne’s daughter and primary researcher,  as she discusses "The Dead Are Arising: The Life of Malcolm X" on P&P Live!

An epic biography of Malcolm X finally emerges, drawing on hundreds of hours of the author’s interviews, rewriting much of the known narrative.

Les Payne, the renowned Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative journalist, embarked in 1990 on a nearly thirty-year-long quest to interview anyone he could find who had actually known Malcolm X—all living siblings of the Malcolm Little family, classmates, street friends, cellmates, Nation of Islam figures, FBI moles and cops, and political leaders around the world. His goal was ambitious: to transform what would become over a hundred hours of interviews into an unprecedented portrait of Malcolm X, one that would separate fact from fiction.

Introduced by Payne’s daughter and primary researcher, Tamara Payne, who, following her father’s death, heroically completed the biography, The Dead Are Arising is a penetrating and riveting work that affirms the centrality of Malcolm X to the African American freedom struggle.

Joe Davidson writes the Federal Insider, formerly the Federal Diary, a Washington Post column on the federal government. He is co-founder of the National Association of Black Journalists, a two-time Pulitzer juror and the recipient of numerous awards.
