Speak at HIS Spring Dinner 2015!

This year, as a culmination to our Islam in America Week, and in celebration of our community’s diversity, we will have student speakers at our Spring Dinner in April instead of a usual keynote speaker.

We would like to welcome voices from across the University and encourage you to send in a speech by filling out the Google Form below. You also have the option of having your speech considered for a Diversity poster display during Spring Dinner so we encourage you to send in something, even if you are not comfortable with public speaking!

If you are interested in applying, please fill out this form by midnight on March 29th.

Remember X: The Life and Legacy of a Civil Rights Legend

unnamed (1)

The Harvard Islamic Society invites you to a special event commemorating the 50 years that have passed since his death. This event will feature Malcolm’s youngest daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz. Our goals for the event are simple, to raise awareness of the immense legacy left by Malcolm X in the many arenas of his life. We hope to promote a more complex and well rounded dialogue about his significance in our country’s history, as well as the untold narrative of civil rights and Islam as they did and continue to exist together in America.
