Fulbright scholar Molefi Kete Asante will speak about the achievements of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King and the impact they had on the civil rights movement and the election of President Barack Obama as part of New Mexico State University’s Black History Month celebration at 7 p.m. Feb. 13 at the Corbett Center Auditorium. The event will be free and open to the general public.
“I think it’s important that we listen and find out what this means for everyone,” Festus Addo-Yobo, director of NMSU Black Programs. “I think it will be good to see his perspective on Obama being elected.”
Asante is a professor in the Department of African American Studies at Temple University in Philadelphia.
