Per the article: "For a quarter century, they have been the stuff of myth among scholars: three missing chapters from “The Autobiography of Malcolm X,” reputedly cut from the manuscript after his assassination in 1965 because they were deemed too incendiary." However it appears the missing chapters were included in a recent auction - so if shared these pages could finally see the light of day. FYI

Oh wow. This is intriguing. Alex Haley I don’t think gets the attention he deserves for helping pen this book. I read that book back and forth in college. I need to revisit it.
