Malcolm X Lecture Available through NHC

Sharif Liwaru has joined the Nebraska Humanities Council as a speaker on Malik El Shabazz (Malcolm X) .This presentation can be made possible by the Nebraska Humanities Council as part of the NHC Speakers Bureau.

What did Malcolm X stand for and what significance does he have to the radical politics and movements of his time? Liwaru will share his life as he describes it, as a “chronology of changes”, presenting a view of Malcolm’s life and the changes he underwent, as well as the relevance of his social, political, and even spiritual thought.  The challenge is to take Malcolm X, all of him, and present this information in an accessible manner.

Malik El Shabazz (Malcolm X)  is one of approximately 300 programs offered through the Nebraska Humanities Council Speakers Bureau. The more than 165 available speakers include acclaimed scholars, writers, musicians, storytellers and folklorists on topics ranging from pioneer heritage to ethics and law to international and multicultural issues, making it the largest humanities speakers bureau in the nation!

Most speakers are available to any non-profit organization in Nebraska at the cost of just $50 for each. Each program lasts 30 minutes to an hour, plus a question-and-answer period.  The most frequent users of the NHC Speakers Bureau are primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, libraries, museums and historical societies, agencies for the elderly, rural organizations, churches, arts organizations and ethnic organizations. The Nebraska Humanities Council sponsors the largest Speakers Bureau program in the U.S. according to the
