Manning Marable
Manning Marable is one of America’s most influential and widely read scholars. Since 1993, Dr. Marable has been Professor of Public Affairs, Political Science, History and African-American Studies at Columbia University in New York City. For ten years, Dr. Marable was founding director of the Institute for Research in African-American Studies at Columbia University, from 1993 to 2003. Under Dr. Marable’s leadership, the Institute became one of the nation’s most prestigious centers of scholarship on the black American experience.
Professor Marable is a national leader in the development of web-based, educational resources on the African American experience. With Columbia’s Center for New Media Teaching and Learning, he has directed the production of: two courses on W.E.B. Du Bois and Malcolm X, respectively; a multimedia version of Du Bois’s The Souls of Black Folk, in 2001; and a massive, multimedia version of The Autobiography of Malcolm X, featuring 440 historical annotations, 78 newsreel and film clip footage of Malcolm X, 216 photographs, over 200 government documents and original oral history interviews with Malcolm X’s friends and associates. In 2005 Dr. Marable and members of his Malcolm X Biography Project designed the content for the multimedia educational kiosks featured at the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center at the historic Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, the site of Malcolm X’s 1965 assassination.
