Malcolm X Fest, We Who Believe In Liberation/Unfinished Business
Time & Location
About the Event
The Dallas Malcolm X Festival Planning Committee and The Pan-African Connection Bookstore & Resource Center invites the Dallas Community to celebrate the life and works of our Brother Malcolm X. This year’s theme is, “We Who Believe in Liberation Have Unfinished Business”.
Since 1971 the Dallas Malcolm X Festival has been an overflow of Dallas Culture and Self-Determination. We gather to connect our struggles for justice, democracy, equality and unity with other disenfranchised and oppressed peoples of the world.
Unlike festivals dreamed up over corporate marketing meetings, this festival continues to swell from its community’s heart, just as it did 47 years ago, at Pearl C. Anderson Middle School, where it sprang from a South Dallas grassroots alliance.
The 2019 Malcolm X Festival, is Saturday May 18th, 11AM to 7 PM, on the west parking lot of Friendship-West Baptist Church, located at 2020 W. Wheatland Rd., Dallas Texas 75232.
We will celebrate the good in our community and humanity; and the strength of our culture and history. We will acquire knowledge on organizations and organizing. We will educate folks on health and food, Art as a tool in our Liberation, and honor ancestors and living activist for their labor and sacrifices.
Organizer Akwete Tyehimba says, “This festival has always been for our young folks. They can look to Malcolm X and know that they too can transform negative or even criminal actions, to become one of the greatest leaders in world history”.
Come enjoy a day of family fun, live music, children’s activities, speakers, marketplace, and tasty food.
The 2019 Malcolm X Festival is sponsored by the Malcolm X Festival Committee, The Pan-African Connection Bookstore, Art Gallery and Resource Center, and City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs.
