Writer Ilyasah Shabazz, Malcom X’s daughter, answered students’ questions and talked about her life on Friday, April 1, in the Auditorium.
Shabazz, was here as part of the All Write campaign. She was originally going to appear in February, but due to a death in the family she rescheduled.
Senior Jakini Ingram interviewed Shabazz about social justice issues, her life and her father’s legacy, and a multimedia presentation gave background information. Then audience members were invited to ask questions.
Before Shabazz’s appearance, senior Dorian Palmer read one of his original works.
At the end of the assembly, junior Cianna Vo presented Shabazz with a painting to commemorate her visit.
