Meet Malcolm X: From Convict to Universal Human Rights Advocate
The Black History Live tour features Charles Everett Pace as Malcolm X.
Malcolm X (1925 – 1965) was born Malcolm Little. He was a Black Muslim minister and National Spokesman for the Nation of Islam. Malcolm X rose from an early life of drug abuse and petty criminal behavior. This respected yet, controversial political figure confronted a personal moral crisis: his own human bigotry.
Malcolm X’s driving quest for knowledge, self-critique, and conversion to Islam changes this ex-convict. This transformation led him to become internationally revered. Although, still a controversial figure. Malcolm X emerged as a spokesman for the cause of universal human rights.
Join us on February 23 to learn more about this fascinating and complex man.
Colorado Humanities is pleased to offer this event as part of our Black History Live Tour 2018 a portrayal of Malcolm X by eminent national humanities and Chautauqua scholar Charles Everett Pace. This portrayal will show how marginal outsiders become influential insiders. Participants have a unique opportunity to talk with Malcolm X and with Charles Everett Pace.
This event is free to attend.
