Who Taught You to Hate Yourself?
Although King and Malcolm had their differences (theological and social) I would like to share a poster I created featuring the famous Malcolm quote "who taught you to hate yourself" in honor of Martin Luther King day. Malcolm and King were both extremely important leaders in the African American community and the Civil Rights movement and both deserve to be honored. The goal of my art exhibition was to create dialog about race, religion and the significance of African American history. King and Malcolm both succeed in pushing this same conversation forward.
The famous "Who Taught You to Hate Yourself" speech by Malcolm X.
Below is an example of how young children have been taught to hate themselves through the images they see and what they are told.
Another video on the topic (great for parrents)
