Ilyasah Shabazz

The East coast storm is taking a toll on New York, and Ilyasah’s Shabazz morning flight that would bring her to Michigan has been cancelled.

Ilyasah Shabazz, third daughter of Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz, is an educator, activist, motivational speaker, and the coauthor of Growing Up X, Betty Before X, and X: a Novel.

We are working with Ilyasah’s representative to make alternate plans and reschedule her presentation, discussion, and book signing. This project is funded in part by Michigan Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Stay tuned!
