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.
Colorado Humanities is pleased to offer as part of our Black History Live Tour 2018 a portrayal of Malcolm X by eminent national humanities and Chautauqua scholar Charles Everett Pace. This portrayal will show how marginal outsiders become influential insiders. Participants have a unique opportunity to talk with Malcolm X and with Charles Everett Pace. Events are free to students and the public
