In this webinar, Professor William ‘Lez’ Henry will take us on a brief journey through the enduring works of Malcolm X who for me was (is) the greatest social commentator that ever lived. I say this because in his works he dealt with almost every issue we have ever faced and still continue to face as people’s of African ancestry, globally, in Europe’s new world economies; within which, we invariably find ourselves, structurally placed at the lower echelons of said economies. What I will therefore do is draw parallels between aspects of what Bro Malcolm X stated and our contemporary social conditions. What I will not do is get involved in ‘horse dead and cow fat’ conspiracies regarding how our brother’s life was ended. All that is asked is you bring your mind and make sure it is open.
Professor William ‘Lez’ Henry is the Professor in Criminology and Sociology at the University of West London. Professor William ‘Lez’ Henry is an international speaker, Social Anthropologist, academic, public speaker and a community activist for over 20 years. The author of a number of books on race, culture, history, music and politics, he is also co-founder of Nu-Beyond Ltd an independent consultancy which focuses on the specialities of education, race, ethnicity, diversity and social, cultural and political empowerment.
