Malcolm X Book Discussion on March 31

“The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.”

Malcolm X


Doug Hotchkis will lead a discussion on The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Malcolm X and Alex Haley. Originally published in 1964, Malcolm X tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement. His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism in a society that denies its nonwhite citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues we are still facing today.

The Autobiography of Malcolm X stands as the definitive statement of a movement and a man whose work was never completed but whose message is timeless. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand America.

No need to buy the book. The Elmhurst library has a copy and there are many copies available from our partner libraries through LINKin. However, if you are like Doug Hotchkis, you might want a copy for your own library so you can read it frequently.

NOTE:  The Church Library is undergoing restoration.  Please gather in Aldersgate for the Discussion.
