Work with Martha Tenney, archivist at the Barnard library to get copies of 4 images from the event that appeared in the 1965 Barnard yearbook > We would like to blow these images up into standard poster-sized images and have them on easels at the event. Also Talk to librarians about making pins for people to wear that publicizes the event. They have a cool machine to do this!

Go to the rare books and manuscript library at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and look at two boxes: Malcolm X's Notes to Speeches and his letters from students. Email Prof. Miller for the Malcolm X finding aide. Look for any information related to Malcolm X's Feb. 18, 1965 speech at Barnard.

Research completed—need to drop off photocopies and contact estate for permission.
Find out about getting big banner hung on Barnard Hall (something professional -- not made out of a sheet!). We need to know cost, lead time and information about getting it hung. We are imagining a big image of a huge "X" with the words "February 18, 1965" above and "February 18, 2005" below. At the bottom, the banner will give details about the event. Once you provide us with the details about getting the banner made, we'll provide you with the text.

Done.
We are interested in a student-created performance at the event that combines extant audio from Malcolm X's final days and student readings of his words. Right now, we know of no recording of the Feb. 18, 1965 speech in Lefrak Gym. In its absence, we're suggesting that you work with the Detroit speech he gave the night before and quotations based on campus media coverage of the Feb. 18 event. The reading/audio performance should be no longer than 10 min.
