Malcolm X, Chautauqua History Comes Alive Talk
Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss American Revolutionary Malcolm X led by Cynthia King, Furman University Communications Department Chair.
Who was this ghetto hustler turned human rights activist? – Black nationalist? Freedom fighter? Racist? Demagogue? Religious zealot? While alive Malcolm X was a polarizing figure who both energized and divided African Americans, while frightening and alienating whites. Now, fifty-six years after his death, people are still coming to grips with the complexity and power of his revolutionary message.
This event is NOT a costumed performance. Darrick Johnson from Maryland will perform as Malcolm X in the Chautauqua History Alive Festival “It’s Revolutionary!” – June 14-23.
