Ilyasah Shabazz, daughter of Malcolm X, to speak on campus
Ilyasah Shabazz, the daughter of Malcolm X, will speak at MSU at 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 12 at the Erickson Kiva.
The free event is a facilitated discussion with audience members, according to a post by the MSU Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives.
The office is sponsoring the appearance, along with The Michigan Humanities Council, the Historical Society of Greater Lansing, MSU Office of Cultural and Academic Transitions and MSU Student Affairs and Services.
Malcolm X gave a speech in the kiva on Jan. 23, 1963, according to the post.
At 10 a.m., Friday, Oct. 13, Shabazz will place a roadside remembrance marker at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Detroit Street, where her grandfather, Earl Little, was killed under “mysterious circumstances.”
“It is important to recognize the life of Malcolm X and his formative years in Lansing. He is one of the most outspoken and important figures in the Civil Rights Movement,” President of the Historical Society Bill Castanier said in the post.
