Saturday, May 16, the Malcolm X Commemoration Committee is hosting a special memorial appreciating the life and legacy the late Herman Ferguson, their legendary founding chair.

The gathering, titled “A Revolutionary Change in Our Lifetime,” will take place at the House of the Lord Church, 415 Atlantic Ave., Brooklyn, 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Among the guest presenters will be poet Sonia Sanchez; the Rev. Herbert Daughtry, the longtime pastor at House of the Lord; Amsterdam News Editor Nayaba Arinde; Pam Africa; and Imam Talib Abdur-Rashid of Mosque of Islamic Brotherhood.

The event will feature an ensemble reading of George Edward Tait’s legendary poem “The Black Brigade,” Baba Herman’s favorite poem. The event will also feature an open mic for community tributes to the pioneering revolutionary educator.

Ferguson, a founding member of Malcolm’s OAAU, passed away at age 93 Sept. 25. He was a founding leader of the Provisional Government of the Republic of New Afrika, and a central leader in the Brooklyn-based struggle for community control of schools in the Black community in the late 1960s.
