Spinex: Explain the purpose of your lecture/ masterclass.
Madam: The purpose of my lecture was to enrich Young Washingtonians about the late Civil Rights Leader, Malcolm X. He is not violent, he just wanted equality.
Spinex: This is how it stood to be. We love what you are doing for Nollywood.
Madam Gabrielle Alexandra Smith was asked to teach her lecture/ masterclass on Malcolm to other programs, in and out of the state.
“The students were puzzled and baffled at the truth. I taught them the excuses of why they kept blacks and poor whites from voting. I implemented a quiz at the end.
I told them this is not taught in your school. So listen. They ended up listening.
Spinex: You told them the truth about it not being taught in their school system?
Spinex: You are so fearless.
Madam: I only fear God who is real.
