Malcom X's World Years Later Feb 17-19 2015

Lehigh University is excited to host a commemorative conference celebrating the life and contributions of Malcolm X fifty years after his assassination. "Malcolm X's World 50 Years Later: Race, Religion and Revolution Today," will take place on Lehigh's campus from February 17-19, 2015 and will include a variety of keynote speakers, panels, papers, and presentations around the social justice themes associated with Malcolm X's life's work. Speakers include: Tariq Ali (New Left Review), Rosa Alicia Clemente (U-Mass-Amherst, 2008 VP Candidate, Green Party), Michael Eric Dyson (Georgetown), Pap Ndiaye (Sciences Po, Paris), Carolyn Rouse (Princeton), and Omid Safi (Duke).
