Rethinking the Black Freedom Movement: Out The Box: Part 2 (University of Illinois)

Abdul Alkalimat continues his discussion on escaping racism and intolerance. Malcolm X was an important figure in African American studies because he was outside of the box in many ways. Malcolm’s life had many phases and many names- Malcolm Little, Detroit Red, Malcolm X, and Omowale were all different names taken on as Malcolm X’s philosophy evolved. In this lecture, Abdul Alkalimat talks about the life of Malcolm X, how his story maps to the black experience, and what it teaches about black agency.
