The biography "The Dead Are Arising" sheds much-needed light on the powerful but polarizing legacy of civil rights icon Malcolm X. Tamara Payne and her late father, Les, spent 30 years working on the book, which won this year's Pulitzer Prize for biography. She joins Michel Martin to reflect on Malcolm X's gripping life story and the recent exoneration of two of his convicted assassins.
