Listen up folks, you have until February 18 to catch X: Or, Betty Shabazz v. The Nation at the Theatre at St. Clement’s. This magnificent show vividly brings to life the assassination of the late great Malcolm X. We cannot say this enough, you need to see this show ASAP. Beautifully written by Marcus Gardley, this play will make you cry, laugh and think really deeply about how the American experiment has still not lived up to it’s lofty rhetoric. Malcolm made his transition in 1965 but his spirit, struggle and legacy continues to inspire, galvanize and captivate oppressed people the world over. Malcolm X Lives!
