Looking Black: Malcolm X, Film and Me

Panel discussion

Malcolm X Looking Black
Sat 23 May 2015,

Malcolm X continues to provide inspiration, controversy and debate today. In this panel discussion Karen Alexander (writer and curator), Roger Griffith (commentator and author), Edson Burton (historian and writer), Madge Dresser (historian) and Jendayi Serwah (community activist and entrepreneur) unite to examine his legacy through film. In the context of Obama’s presidency, has what Malcolm X argued and campaigned for become irrelevant? How does Malcolm’s story of radicalisation relate to race, class, and religion today? Join us to discuss the man, the method, and the message.

Part of Come the Revolution… a series of screenings, discussions and special events to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of minister, author, self-made man, political activist and civil rights leader – the complex, controversial and charismatic Malcolm X.
