Uptown Tonight: The Enduring Impact of Malcolm X @ The Shabazz Center

Today, 49 years ago, the civil and human rights giant, Malcolm X, was martyred in what was then the Audubon Ballroom but has since been re-christened the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center. While Malcolm, the man, was slain that fateful day, the spirit of Malcolm X lives, breathes and evolves to this day. The Shabazz Center (3940 Broadway) commemorates his transition with an inter-generational celebration of the life, legacy, and historical contribution of this 20th Century leader, whose leadership and vision are increasingly relevant in the 21st century.

Please come out to The Shabazz Center this Friday, Feb. 21 to commemorate Malcolm X Memorial Day. They will be featuring panel discussions, artistic performances, film screenings, and lite refreshments.
