Talk: “Malcolm X, Islam and the Souls of Black Folk” by Dr. Zain Abdullah, Temple University, March 25, 2022 @ 5:00 pm ET

March 25, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Malcolm X is one of the 20th century’s most intriguing figures, becoming a standard in Black Studies, street culture and global affairs, with Turkey recently changing its new American embassy’s street to “Malcolm X Avenue.” Still, his deep encounter with religion is routinely ignored. Dr. Zain Abdullah places Malcolm X in the context of Islam and the fight for Black liberation, as both consistently informed his worldview and his struggle to free oppressed peoples.
