Ah, well done Miss Anna. He is a great figure in American history.

I completely agree. How horrible is it that my knowledge of the civil rights movement was the peaceful Martin Luther King Jr. versus the angry black man Malcolm X. What I am able to recognize now is my ignorance on the subject, and take heart in the knowledge that I want to learn more about Malcolm X and his teachings on race in America.

Let be known that Elizabeth and I passed the same copy of the book back and forth (well, we passed it over an ocean).

Anyone know if there's some collection of Malcolm X's speeches and interviews? Either on audio or in print?

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
