Kawaida Organization Holds 41st Annual Malcolm X Awards Program

On Friday May 21st, the New York Chapter of the National Association of Kawaida Organizations (NAKO) will host the 41st Annual Malcolm X Awards Program, acknowledging those whose efforts in public service best exemplify the characteristics that Malcolm himself displayed to his people and to the enhancement of a world we all want and deserve to live in; integrity, intelligence, analysis, consciousness, self-sacrifice, ethical behavior and so much more.

The Awardees for this year are New York State Assemblywoman Inez D. Barron, New York City Councilman Charles Barron, and Bernard White, former program manager of Pacifica Radio WBAI.

The keynote speaker for this year award's presentation will be A. Peter Bailey, founding member of The Organization of Afro-American Unity which was founded by Malcolm X. He is one of the last four or five people to speak with Brother Malcolm on February 21, 1965.

Brother Bailey was a pall-bearer at Malcolm’s funeral. He is a former associate editor of Ebony magazine and continues contributing articles to various media. Additionally he has lectured at various universities such as Hampton, Temple and Yale. He is a former president of the New York Association of Black Journalists and has been a guest host of the nationally syndicated radio talk show ‘Night Talk’.

This program will take place at Restoration Plaza, from 6:30pm to 9pm, at1368 Fulton St. in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Suggested minimum donation for this program is $10.00.
