The assassination of Malcolm X to be discussed in live event

Investigative journalism and history will converge on March 23 when Arizona State University’s Institute for Humanities Research will sponsor a virtual talk with Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, whose years of reporting led to the exoneration of two men convicted of the 1965 assassination of Malcolm X.

The conversation will take place at 3 p.m. and registration is available.

Remembering Professor Elsie Moore

Elsie Moore, a beloved Arizona State University faculty member and pioneer in diversity, equity and inclusion, died on Feb. 21 at the age of 72.

“Elsie shared her grace, intellect and love of learning with every person she encountered,” ASU President Michael M. Crow said. “She advanced against intellectual and cultural adversaries with wisdom, understanding and love. She made a difference here at ASU and in our broader world, and will be deeply missed.”
