Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article examines the crucial but understudied role black women radicals such as Vicki Garvin, Louise Little, Betty Shabazz, and Queen Mother Audley Moore played in shaping the black revolutionary politics and legacy of Malcolm X. Dynamic activist-intellectuals, these women's collaborations with Malcolm X speak to the importance of black women in the making of the black radical tradition.
