Description

February 21, 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of one of the most iconic leaders of the 20th century, Malcolm X El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. William A. “Sandy” Darity Jr. (a professor of Public Policy, African and African American Studies, and Economics at Duke University and Director of the Duke Consortium on Social Equity) and William (Bill) Hart, Professor of Religion at University of North Carolina at Greensboro sat down together for a taped conversation on Malcolm X ahead of a national conference being held at Duke and UNC Chapel Hill (2/20/15-2/21/15) on “The Legacy of Malcolm X: Afro-American Visionary, Muslim Activist.” (http://islamicommentary.org/2015/02/on-50th-anniv-of-his-death-scholars-reflect-on-the-legacy-of-malcolm-x-afro-american-visionary-muslim-activist/) In this clip the two professors talk about peaceful protest, violence, and what civil rights demonstrators today can take away from Malcolm X and the civil rights movement of the 1960s. This video was produced by Julie Poucher Harbin of ISLAMiCommentary and Catherine Angst of the John Hope Franklin Center as part of the Field Reports series.
