Racism and oppression are alive and well in the United States. From the attempts of politicians to rob Afro-Americans of their voting rights to the overflowing prisons that entrap millions and the epidemic of police murder that has claimed the lives of Oscar Grant, Sean Bell and Alan Blueford; the New Jim Crow is out of control.

In celebration of what would have been his 88th birthday, the International Socialist Organization will host a discussion on the revolutionary ideas of Malcolm X.

From his legacy of struggle against racism to his firm belief in the right of the oppressed to self-defense, and his internationalism, Malcolm X still has much to offer a new generation.

Speakers:
Brian Jones is an educator, actor and activist in New York City. Brian co-narrated the film, The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman and contributed to the book, Education and Capitalism: Struggles for Learning and Liberation. His commentary and writing have appeared on MSNBC.com, Democracy Now!, The Huffington Post, GritTV and SocialistWorker.org. Brian has also lent his voice to several audiobooks, including, The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment That Changed the World and Howard Zinn's one-man play Marx in Soho. Brian was recently awarded a Lannan Cultural Freedom Fellowship.

Special Guest speaker Jeralynn Blueford - mother of Alan Blueford, murdered by OPD and co-founder of the Justice for Alan Blueford (JAB) committee.
