    Remember X: The Life and Legacy of a Civil Rights Legend

    with Keynote Address by Ilyasah Shabazz, daughter of Malcolm X

    The Harvard Islamic Society, in conjunction with the Black Students Association, the Black Men’s Forum, the Association of Black Harvard Women, and the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations are proud to present “Remember X: The Life and Legacy of a Civil Rights Legend”. This event will feature Malcolm’s youngest daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, as the keynote speaker. Our goals for the event are simple, to raise awareness of the immense legacy left by Malcolm X in the many arenas of his life. We hope to promote a more complex and well rounded dialogue about his significance in our country’s history, as well as the untold narrative of civil rights and Islam as they did and continue to exist together in America. This event has been generously sponsored by the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research and the Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal Center for Islamic Studies at Harvard University.

    Cancelled: St. Patrick’s Day People’s Parade

    Update: This year’s peace parade has been cancelled.

    SOLIDARITY

    Dear Friend of Peace, Social, Economic, Political and Environmental Justice,

    Veteran’s for Peace is in the process of organizing our fifth annual St. Patrick’s Day People’s Parade. Over the last four years we have managed to put a few thousand like-minded citizens marching through the streets of South Boston after the main parade. We would like to increase our numbers this year. No matter our individual areas of struggle, we are all battling the same corporatocracy that has bought out our government and mainstream media. No matter the issue, we are all in this together. We must take back our democracy!

    We would love to have your organization become a part of this important event. The only way to get our government and media to take notice of our demands is to put large numbers of people in the street. We need to work together. Our strength is in our numbers.

    This is also a fun and festive activity with music, dancing and lots of energy. Bring your banner, make a sign, raise your voice, and spread the word. The people are organizing! The people are marching!
