Malcolm Burnley and the Lost Malcolm X Tape
Malcolm Burnley was a college student doing a class assignment when he stumbled across a true historical find: A lost audio tape of a Malcolm X speech from 1961. The discovery launched Burnley on a journalism career. Now a freelance journalist who has written for Politico, The Atlantic, and Philadelphia magazine, Burnley talks to Jason about how he broke into magazines (as a fact-checker), his childhood in Staten Island, and his encounters with Malcolm X admirers and historians.
