Malcolm, Manning and Black Men: The Brilliance of the Dearly Departed

The death of the great Manning Marable at Columbia University was hard for me. At the young age of 60, Professor Marable took his rightful place with the legends of the black history, ending an amazing life and remarkable career. Professor Marable passed as one of the great black scholars of our time, and had the vision to expand the walls of his classroom to include millions of black and brown people across the world.

    I am really sadden to hear of the Passing of this wonderful teacher. I was a student of his mother at Wilberforce University. His untimely death is a terrible blow. My condolences to his family.

  2. It is tragic that those among us leaving a mark often pass on before they are truly appreciated. However i have the distinct impression that Dr Marable was leaving a contemporary mark that reflected his autobiography in real time as he lived, reflected, and taught our story in the academy, press, community, and prison.

  3. Professor .Marable will be truly missed ,he brought such enriched value to the study of THE BLACK EXPERIENCE, and he enhanced the universal ideal of Black scholarship world wide ,he will be missed at least to me…..
