Becoming A Malcolm x-pertfinal
T’ShAngo Mbilishaka
Instructor
Students will gain the most comprehensive understanding of Malcolm X of any class offered anywhere to date. This course is based on the research of over 50 Malcolm X books. They will move beyond what Amos Wilson called the “hero worship approach” to history and learn to critically analyze the challenges our ancestors faced so we can appropriately address many of the same issues we face today. They will also be taught problem resolution skills through situations that faced Malcolm and will have to choose what they think the best strategy is to overcome the adversity. They will learn how to identify what made Malcolm truly dangerous to white power and such a blessing to Black people.

As the course progresses, students will have a more realistic approach to Malcolm’s decision making and not just his speaking abilities. Everyone will receive a Malcolm X Study Guide, and be required to watch numerous video clips, and entire documentaries on Malcolm X. They will be given articles that cover his success on the debate team in prison to what he wrote in his personal diary the year before he was assassinated. They will compare and contrast interviews with people who loved him and were closest to him, and agencies such as the CIA, FBI, New York police department. These interviews will serve as context for unpacking the meaning of statements made by Black informants to disrupt, discredit and destroy Malcolm X, The Nation of Islam, and Black people.

Students will learn information that was completely left out of the latest series on Netflix about who killed Malcolm X, particularly, they will learn about the 6 assassination attempts on Malcolm X’s life before the Audubon Ballroom on February 21, 1965. Malcolm’s assassination will be placed within the context of the US Government’s plan to wipe out all global leaders who wanted to revolt against global white domination. Students will see how Malcolm X did not change when he came back from his second trip to Mecca and will identify how his strategy did change. We will utilize video clips to examine why.
