“That’s why I like libraries. What are they? They are our access to the past.”
These were the words of Abdul Alkalimat, who spoke at the Moraine Valley Library as part of our opening One Book event on the Autobiography of Malcalm X in 2007. Dr. Alkalimat discussed the importance of connecting with the idea of previous generations, even if these ideas are not taught in the classroom.
Dr. Alkalimat discussed Malcolm X and the Black experience. He set the tone for the One Book program from 2007-2008. The audio of this event is available below:
