Nicole Mazza Black Transition in America Extra Credit December 14 th 2011 In class on December 5 th 2011 we had Ms. Donna Auston come in to class to talk to us about a lot of topics we are talking about in class. In the begining of the lecture, we learned that she was a student at Rutgers University and even took the Black Transition in America class taught by Dr. Ramsamy. She also is a contributor in our textbook. Seventeen years ago, she decided to become Muslim. At the time when she was starting to debate back and fourth of what religion she wanted to follow, she was very skeptical of what she was told about her own heritage. However, she thought that being Muslim was a good place for her to be culturally and spiritually. In Ms. Auston’s speech, she talks about how she stared her journey on the road of Islam by looking to Malcom X for answers. Malcom X during his life went though a lot of transitions. In high school he had aspirations of being a lawyer. However, in February of 1946 Malcom was in prison which is where he encounters Islam. On top of that he developed a huge passion for learning. He basically went from criminal to a studious person. He also looked to Billy Graham. Malcom would watch him while he was in prison and take notes on the style and structure of his public speaking skills. Then in 1952 Malcom X became the national spokes person for Islam. He was a loyal disciplined member who led the nation of Islam in to new sets of beliefs and added politics. But later on in his life, Malcom X started to discover things about his religion that he didn’t really agree on.
