As part of our One Book, One College program on the Autobiography of Malcolm X, we welcomed Dr. Abdul Alkalimat from the University of Illinois who delivered a great lecture on the life, times, historical context, and teachings of Malcolm X. Dr. Alkalimat’s lecture we a great kickoff to all of our One Book Events. If you missed it, you can listen to this event on our Library Events Podcast page.
Dr. Alkalimat’s presentation was a call to action for all of us to follow Malcolm X’s example.
Dr. Alkalimat is the editor and creator of the Brothermalcolm.net Web site.
Nearly 125 students, staff, and faculty attended this event.
