Malcolm X was assassinated in the Audubon Ballroom in Washington Heights 56 years ago this Sunday.

Every year The Shabazz Center, which occupies the historic location at 3940 Broadway, holds a special commemoration. This year, it's going virtual.

The special panel discussion “Organizing in the Black Radical Tradition: What Malcolm X Means for the Movement” is being livestreamed on YouTube this Sunday, February 21 at 6pm; speakers will include Malcolm X's daughter Ilyasah Shabazz.

The conversation continues on Monday, February 22 at 5:30pm, when Columbia University's Center for the Study of Muslim Societies joins with the Shabazz Center for the online discussion "Malcolm's Worldmaking Practice: Reclaiming his Local and Global Legacy." You can register for the free webinar here.

The Center itself is temporarily closed, but TCU has a few more great pictures here.
