A Celebration of Malcolm X in WPB
May 16 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Malcolm X, the American Muslim who had been active in the Civil Rights Movement, had also been controversial. While some praised him for his strong advocacy for the rights of black Americans, others accuse him, to this day, of preaching racism and violence. But there will be a celebration of his life and legacy this afternoon in West Palm Beach. The daylong event is free and open to the public and will be held at the RBG House–as in red, black and green, as in the colors of Africa–and will feature live performances, a variety of vendors and a celebration of all things black. The point, says Nyota King-Sanyang, owner of All About Us LLC, which sells authentic African wares and is an event sponsor, is to learn more. “There were things Malcolm X believed in that we need to know,” she said. “It’s all about us.” For more information, send an email here or call 561-247-0618.
