A Conversation With Ilyasah Shabazz - extended versionPublished on Nov 9, 2015 The ICV, in partnership with Variety Victoria, the children\'s charity, proudly hosted Ilyasah Al Shabazz, the daughter of the legendary African-American Muslim leader Malcolm X, in the heart of the CBD at the iconic Melbourne Town Hall on Friday, October 9. Ilyasah Al Shabazz is a community organiser, social activist, motivational speaker and author who works tirelessly to promote higher education, interfaith dialogue and in connecting young leaders of the world. Fifty years on from the assassination of Malcolm X, Ilyasah is walking in the footsteps of her father who was a giant in the civil rights movement. Malcolm X advocated for positive change in civil and human rights in the 1950s and \'60s and helped fight racial prejudice, empower youth and spread the peaceful message of Islam. Ilaysah spent the week visiting schools and universities, meeting with youth leaders and attending media interviews. As part of the ICV’s community engagement outlook, the event was organised with public accessibility in mind, with many students and community members from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds in attendance. The ICV event attracted more than 800 people, and with MC Toltu Tufa from Afaan Productions at the helm, the atmosphere in the grand hall was exuberant. The evening began with a stirring presentation by Indigenous elder, Monica Morgan which was followed with the official thanks by ICV executive director Nail Aykan. Variety board member and key organiser of the Ilyasah Shabazz tour, Craig Dent, reflected on the previous ICV event at the town hall, the Melbourne Muslim Festival, before introducing Ilyasah to the delighted audience. \"On behalf of the ICV, it was an honour to host this first time in Australia and only in Melbourne event, which featured an awe-inspiring presentation by Ilyasah Shabazz, the daughter of legendary civil rights leader, Malcolm X,\" Mr Nail Aykan said. Ilyasah spoke about her father from a deeply personal account, revealing a gentle, yet determined man. She spoke of his faith and intelligence, the two factors that she attributes to his enigmatic leadership, that along with his attitude that if something needs doing, don’t wait, don’t complain, just get it done. The desire for equality and justice drove Malcolm X to pursue his activism, and in those 12 short years he made significant contributions to the civil rights movement. Ilyasah, herself an admirable community leader of strength, talent and grace also shared the inspiration that was her mother, Dr Betty Shabazz. Widowed in her twenties with four young children and pregnant with twins, Dr. Shabazz not only went on to educate and illuminate her 6 young daughters, but also became a powerhouse in the struggle for civil rights and equality for women. When you teach a man, you teach a community; when you teach a woman, you raise a nation - Malcolm X
