The Socio-Political Dream of Malcolm X”: Educational Progression for African Americans through Black Nationalism

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This essay will discuss Malcolm X’s socio-political philosophies of Black Nationalism juxtaposed to the educational progression of African Americans during the era of “Black Power” following his death in 1965. The influence of the Malcolm X interpretation of Black Nationalism provoked action for ‘Black Studies’ and called for a need to establish institutions in the traditions of self-sufficiency and self-determined beliefs that translated to nationalistic pride.
The evolution of Malcolm X’s social and political thought became the catalyst for later practitioners of social change who provoked the American social landscape to formulate the ‘Black Power’ era. A significant element of the Malcolm X idealism is found in elevated 'consciousness' of African American students whose protest efforts demanded the deconstruction of psychologically oppressive curricula in both secondary and post-secondary institutions.
This essay will also discuss the underpinnings of 'praxis' as it relates to the Black Power educational institutions to show that the edifying influence of Malcolm X on the Black Power era educational advancement was more than conjecture. The work of activists such as Owusu Sadaki (Howard Fuller) with the foundation of Malcolm X Liberation University and that of Amiri Baraka with the opening of the African Free School as the educational arm of the Congress of Afrikan People will be analyzed in the context of Black Nationalism as well.
