Summary expansion
In a rare and important book, Dyson probes the myths and meanings of Malcolm X for our time. From Spike Lee's film biography to Eugene Wolfenstein's psychobiographical study, from hip-hop culture to gender and racial politics, Dyson cuts a critical swath through both the idolization and the vicious caricatures that have undermined appreciation of Malcolm's greatest accomplishments
