Colorado Humanities Presents: Black History Live, Malcolm X
The eminent national humanities and Chautauqua scholar Charles Everett Pace will portray Malcolm X during this year’s Chautauqua program, teaching how marginal outsiders become influential insiders.
Malcolm X (1925-1965), born Malcolm Little, was a Black Muslim minister and National Spokesman for the Nation of Islam. After rising from an early life of drug abuse and petty criminal behavior, this respected yet controversial political figure confronts a personal moral crisis: his own human bigotry. His driving quest for knowledge, self-critique and conversion to Islam changes this ex-convict, into an internationally revered, though still controversial, spokesman for the cause of universal human rights.
