Today we also mark another loss: the passing of Manning Marable, a tower of both intellect and activism. One of the leading scholars on African-American history and the legacy of institutional racism and economic injustice, his formidable biography Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention is being released this week. We share with you a slice of one of his conversations on GRITtv, to give you just a taste of his spirit and insight. Marable was reflecting on the comments of Attorney General Eric Holder's comment in February 2009 about our being a "nation of cowards" on the issue of race. Distributed by Tubemogul.
