One person greatly inspired by Malcolm X’s legacy was AfroBeat innovator Fela Anikulapo Kuti. On Tuesday, the library and Lincoln Center Local HD will explore the impact Malcolm X had on Fela, in a broadcast of Red Hot + FELA LiVE!
Following the screening, Sahr Nguajah, original star of the Tony Award-winning FELA! On Broadway will lead a Q&A. Also, Broadway dancer Iris Wilson, another original FELA! cast member, will lead participants in a high-energy AfroBeat Body dance workshop.
All are welcome!
