if you're interested in Malcolm X or Manning Marable's book about him

Tony Bouza 's Manning Marable's 'Malcolm X' is worth a read. I've known Bouza by reputation since he was the police chief of Minneapolis. He always impressed me as an honorable man; I'm not surprised that he admired Malcolm X and went to his funeral. While I'm sure there were plenty of cops who were glad to see Malcolm X die, I'm also sure there were others like Bouza. His take on the death of Malcolm X may not be accurate, but I'm sure it's honest and I find it convincing.
