Malcolm X (1925-1965) in his brief lifetime was one of the most gifted leaders of the 20th century who not only continues to influence the culture, life and thinking of countless African Americans but other thinkers in America and intellectuals internationally. This interdisciplinary course uses Malcolm X's life as a prism through which to view Black popular culture, politics and the moral practices of American society. Malcolm's life is also used to understand the influence of an indigenous Islamic movement that exists in many African American and urban communities. Students will understand this crucial Era in America by examining the values, aesthetics and leadership of Malcolm X through his autobiography, speeches and interviews as well as through selected biographies, monographs, editorials and essays. Guest speakers and video presentations will be utilized to stress his challenges to his Era's global white supremacy and the misuse of Western wealth and power to exploit Africa and African Diasporic people worldwide.
