Daughter of Malcolm X Kicks Off Arts & Lectures Series

The first Arts and Lectures event of the fall semester features Ilyasah Shabazz, the third daughter of the late Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz. 

The event is at 6 p.m. on Sept. 20 in the USU Ballroom. The event is free for Cal State San Marcos students. Faculty, staff, alumni and community members can purchase tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website.

How do we ensure that the student activism witnessed during the pandemic and after the death of George Floyd not only continues but also makes an impact around the world? Shabazz believes you can look back at the historical legacy of her mother and father to find inspirational solutions. In her keynote presentation, Shabazz – an award-winning author, educator and producer – will share powerful stories of what she learned from her iconic activist parents and how you, too, can make the diverse world more equitable and inclusive for all. 

CSUSM’s Arts & Lectures series offers a diverse lineup of artistic, cultural and scholarly events every semester based on input and proposals from students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Attendees can reserve tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website.
