The Lost Chapters of Malcolm X

May 19, 2010 ·

And a discussion on the racial divide in honor of his 85th birthday.

This discussion will occur on the Marc Steiner show 5pm to 6pm on 88.9FM for those in the Baltimore area.  For those not in the Baltimore area, go to Marc Steiner's website tomorrow and catch the podcast.  

Also participating in the show will be:

  • Minister Akbar Muhammad, who was in the Nation of Islam under Malcolm X; 
  • Omar Musa a Washington DC community activist, and
  • Lalit Clarkson from the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement.

In honor of this birthday the lost chapters of the Autobiography of Malcolm X are to be revealed in New York City. These chapters are said to highlight Malcolm’s view of the means to overcome the racial divide in the United States.  During this time of America’s war against Islamic terrorism, I believe further discussion on one of the country’s most well known radical, anti-Western Muslims will be quite enlightening.
