Betty Before X is a newly released children's book by Ilyasah Shabazz, the daughter of Civil Rights Icons, Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz. Ilyasah speaks about her mother's life and what it was like growing up in the mid-1940's. This beautifully illustrated read is appealing to children as well as adults. Ms. Shabazz will be on hand to provide in depth insight regarding her inspiration for penning her latest book as well as will autograph purchased copies. Additionally, educators from Thurgood Marshall Academy in Harlem, will be on hand to provide a brief piece of history to set the 1940's tone.
The book talk and signing will take place at the lovely Raw Space in Harlem on Saturday, January 27, 2018 to kick off African American History Month.
