The Legacy Lives On

Everyone is pretty familiar with teachings of Brother Malcolm X, his story is known far and wide. Born Malcolm Little in  May, 1925, he went from being Detroit Red, the hustler to emerge as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, aka Malcolm X, one of history’s most recognized spiritual leaders. But in this 1963 edition of Playboy magazine, you get to know Malcolm through the eyes of Roots author, Alex Haley. 

Tonight, the legacy lives on as Ilyasah Shabazz, the daughter of Malcom X,  gives a free lecture at the OISE Auditorium inside U of  T. No details seem to be available online, unless you Facebook (or you know Big G), so I’ve taken the liberty of copying the details below. If anyone checks this out, please leave a comment to let us know how it went.
