Malcolm X: What Might He Think of America's Military Presence in South Asia, the Middle East and West Africa (Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Washington DC)

13 Feb 2018
6:30pm - 9:00pm EST

If Malcolm X were alive today, what might he think about America's involvement in the War in Afghanistan, Syria and military presence in Niger?

On November 10, 1963, Malcolm X delivered a riveting presentation at King Solomon Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan entitled "Message to the Grass Roots" in which he discussed imperialism and mentioned the United States' military involvement in Southeast Asia.

In celebration of Black History Month, WPFW-FM News Director Askia Muhammad will discuss Malcolm X’s views on war and examine the historical significance of the 1963 speech.

Join us for an enlightening lecture about Malcolm X and issues of his time -- war and imperialism -- that are with us today.
