On this edition of In Black America, producer/host John L. Hanson Jr. speaks with Tamara Payne, co-author of The Dead Are Arising: The Life of Malcolm X.

After her father died in 2018, Payne was left to deal with more than one kind of grief: the sorrow a daughter feels for the loss of her father, but also the pain of knowing that her father wouldn't be around to see the success of his final book.

Payne talks about researching Malcolm’s life for her father; why her father was so interested in Malcolm; why Malcolm’s life is relevant today; how Malcolm transformed his life; and Malcolm’s assassination at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem.

John L. Hanson is the producer and host of the nationally syndicated radio series In Black America. It’s heard on home station KUT at 10 p.m. Tuesdays and 6:30 a.m. Sundays — and weekly on close to 20 stations across the country. The weekly podcast of IBA, the only nationally broadcast Black-oriented public affairs radio program, is one of KUT’s most popular podcasts.
