Malcolm X’s Diary + Ninjas Be Reading TONIGHT

Just a couple updates today:

1. Malcolm X’s personal diary from the last year of his life is being published THIS WEEK. Y’all, this is major. Malcolm underwent a transformation in the last part of his life. Caveat: it’s some mess because even though his daughter Ilyasah Shabazz is backing the release of the diary, other family members don’t want it published. ¬†Peep the trailer below:

2. DopeReads is facilitating the final book club discussion of Kiese Laymon’s book of essays, “How To Slowly Kill Yourself and Others In America”. Tonight on Twitter 9PM EST, use the hashtag #NBR. We gets jiggy with this reading sh*t.
