Malcolm X, Self Determination, & Independent School

Ask your child if he or she knows about the important life of Malcolm X. And, if they do, question what story they know. Teaching Tolerance has a great link sharing classroom or home discussions for middle and upper grades.

On May 19, the life and legacy of Malcolm X was celebrated and recognized by many who proclaimed it Malcolm X Day. This transcendent figure was and continues to be a beacon of self determination and civil leadership.

Malcolm X black nationalist, civil leader, man of integrity, and man of love. His life is important because of his constant evolution towards self love & pride, with his final years projecting tolerance and love towards all people.

After his assassination, wife Betty Shabazz continued to advance his life and that of their six girls. Dr. Shabazz went on to complete her doctorate and sent her girls to private independent school. I am confident she too placed a premium on the quality education and recognized the value of this type of school choice.

Please take a moment to reply here and share why you choose to consider or send your child of color to an independent school. Your feedback will be valuable insight to others.

And, don’t forget to encourage another family to consider private independent education by asking them to attend RIISE’s diversity recruitment event on Sunday, June 3. Thank you for sharing widely in your networks.
