Rethinking Malcolm X: Enid Lee and A. Peter Bailey in Conversation
Teaching for Change is pleased to co-host “Rethinking Malcolm X: Enid Lee and A. Peter Bailey in Conversation” on October 23 at Busboys and Poets in Washington, DC. Internationally respected educator Enid Lee and journalist A. Peter Bailey, past president of the New York Association of Black Journalists, will shatter the traditional textbook portrayal of Malcolm X, focusing on his perspectives on international politics, self-defense, and group self-determination.
Bailey, author of Witnessing Brother Malcolm X: The Master Teacher, worked closely with Malcolm X as editor of the Organization of African American Unity newsletter. He is an author, former associate editor of Ebony, and taught as an adjunct professor at three universities.
Lee is co-editor of Teaching for Change’s publication Beyond Heroes and Holidays: A Practical Guide to K-12 Anti-Racist, Multicultural Education and Staff Development and travels throughout the U.S. and Canada working with schools on an initiative called “Putting Race on the Table.” The event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome so that Teaching for Change can share with teachers the insights and resources from this event about the hidden history of Malcolm X.
