In life, the professor of Columbia University was the subject of controversy, there were those who criticized him for having an overview of the history and currently scheduled for his left-wing stance.

However, his books are among the main reference texts of African American Studies Chairs. Marable worked for two decades in his biography of Malcolm X, black radical Muslim and leader for many years in the "Nation of Islam" who was assassinated in February 1965 in New York.
