The Freedom School is back in session with a class and discussion centered around the life of Malcolm X.
February 21 marked the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, a man whose legacy means many different things to many different people.
Malcolm X’s beliefs had a major impact that transcended his life, his race, his religion, and his nation. His beliefs animated the Black Panther Party, were discussed throughout countless social movements throughout the Third World; his name invoked by those struggling in apartheid South Africa, the streets of Gaza, the slums of India.
His spirit can be found in the countless prison cells, protests, schools, mosques, marches, movements, slums, rebellions and in the dreams of a better world yet to come.
Yes, Malcolm means many things to many people. What does he mean to you? Come join our discussion at 7:00 PM this Wednesday.
