Malcom X in Brooklyn
Nov 16, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Although most closely identified with Harlem, Malcolm X’s work and influence extended throughout New York City—including Brooklyn, where he helped to establish a Muslim mosque and encourage its members to establish local businesses. Fifty years after his death, Malcolm X’s influence in Brooklyn can be seen not only in its religious life, but also in its politics and culture. Drawing on his work at Columbia University’s Malcolm X Project and his own graduate research, BHS’s Oral Historian Zaheer Ali explores Malcolm X’s history and continued legacy in Brooklyn.
