Liz Mazucci
Project Manager, Malcolm X Project

Liz Mazucci is the project manager of the Malcolm X Biography Project. She has been involved with the project since June 2003.
Her research interests include social archaeology, Egyptology, black nationalism and heritage production. Specifically, she is interested in the latent political and social power in the preservation of African-American artifacts and how archaeology in Africa has shaped the identities of African Americans historically.
She has recently earned an MA in archaeology (anthropology department) at Columbia University (October 2005). Her master’s thesis is an archaeological analysis of artifacts literally shaped by the assassination of Malcolm X. She uncovered these artifacts while archiving the district attorney’s case file on his murder, located in the NYC Municipal Archives. Mazucci earned her BA in religion and archaeology (double-major) at the University of Rochester.
