Inscription.  
Alexander Murray Palmer Haley lived and maintained a writing studio here. Beginning in 1963 he conducted many in-depth interviews with Malcolm X for his first book, The Autobiography of Malcolm X. Published shortly after his assassination in 1965, that book transformed the public’s view of Malcolm X, and is widely considered one of the top works of non-fiction. His next project was the 1976 book Roots: The Saga of an American Family/ for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.
