    The Undiscovered Malcolm X: Stunning New Info on the Assassination, His Plans to Unite the Civil Rights and Black Nationalist Movements & the 3 ‘Missing’ Chapters from His Autobiography

    ... historian Manning Marable who has spent a decade working on a new biography of Malcolm X. He is one of the few historians to see the three missing chapters from “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” that he says paint a very different picture than the book with Alex Haley and Spike Lee’s film. Marable has also had unprecedented access to Malcolm’s family and documents that shed new light on the involvement of the New York Police, the FBI and possibly the CIA in Malcolm X’s assassination. ...

    MALCOLM X: THE FBI FILES

    INTRODUCTION
    This project is an inventory and index of 4,000 pages of surveillance reports on Malcolm X. These pages are available in their entirety at the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) website. This online inventory provides an index to the selected portions of the surveillance records, for which no index exists. At the FBI website, users have to download and peruse PDF files that are hundreds of pages in length for relevant information. Other works on FBI surveillance of Malcolm X only scratch the surface -- Clayborne Carson's Malcolm X: The FBI file or Ward Churchill's The Cointelpro Papers, for example -- offering only selected excerpts from the material. It is my hope that the inventory of the Malcolm X FBI files will provide a more rounded research tool for students and scholars interested not only in Malcolm X, but the methodology and means of the federal surveillance apparatus.

    The FBI files provide insight into the activities of Malcolm X, especially before his break with the Nation of Islam and Elijah Muhammad; activities that are glossed over or omitted by Malcolm and Alex Haley in The Autobiography of Malcolm X. In addition, the FBI files reveal much about what the agency itself deemed to be subversive acts: Malcolm's affiliation with Communist Party figures, his polemics against whites, his advocacy of armed self-defense for African-Americans, among other points

    The files enclosed herein have been organized by date into discrete individual reports. Click on a year in the navigation above to see files on Malcolm from that year. Each report is available in Acrobat PDF format. I've taken the liberty of providing a brief summary of each report. Simply select a year in the navigation bar above to view FBI files from that time period.
