    Malcolm X & Fake Celebrity Relationships

    Malcolm X & Fake Celebrity Relationships

    Where are we Wednesday? Still inside! While Jane learned about something useful this week (the life and legacy of Malcom X), Sarah descended into TikTok conspiracy chaos. Do you believe Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde are really together? On a more serious note, we hope everyone took some time last week on MLK Day and beyond to consider the role of Black activists in our past and present. May the legacy of Malcolm X empower you to future action!
