Atallah Shabazz, the eldest daughter of civil rights leader Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz, is an accomplished writer, producer and diplomat who has spoken and led initiatives throughout the U.S., Europe, Central America, Africa and the Caribbean. She will speak about the importance of moral leadership, her parents’ legacies, and the lessons that today’s leaders can learn from Malcolm X’s life and leadership. This was a great experience for my Public Admin graduate students.
“By any means necessary I will live up to my divine destiny”, Ambassador Shabazz
Who’s impeding your growth- whether the flag flys or not – does it stop you from living.
By any means necessary – Malcom X read the dictionary for sport.
“I thought my mother was mean – there were expectations in our household to be great- ‘by any means necessary’.”
When you read a headline- go through it- the enemy is a mind set.
“When 2 argue it’s hard to tell who the fool is”, (Malcom X). How easy we can be prodded or provoked. Who I am “in my full self” does not impose on “your full self”.

Carpe is the second-person singular present active imperative of carpō “pick or pluck” used by Horace to mean “enjoy, seize, use, make use of”. Diem is the accusative case of the noun dies “day”. A more literal translation of “carpe diem” would thus be “pluck the day [as it is ripe]”—i.e., enjoy the moment.
