“The Vision of Malcolm X,”

Rev. David Herndon, Senior Minister.

After his conversion to Islam, Malcolm X had an experience that deeply challenged his previous views and forever changed his vision of humanity. What was that experience? How did his vision change? In accord with our year-long exploration of Abrahamic Faiths, and in accord with our monthly spiritual theme for September, which is Vision, we will explore how the lesson that Malcolm X learned might hold relevance for our society nowadays.
