Askia Muhammad, former editor-in-chief of The Final Call and news director for WPFW, will read and sign copies of his life story, "The Autobiography of Charles 67X," at 7 pm on January 31 at Sankofa Video & Books. 

WHO IN THE WORLD IS CHARLES 67X?
Born Charles K. Moreland, Jr., in Indianola, Mississippi, he exchanged the "slave name" Moreland for the Nation of Islam's "X," as in "unknown quantity," as in "ex-Negro," as in "Charles 67X."

He's now Askia Muhammad, a poet and photojournalist, and he's used beauty and skill in the Autobiography of Charles 67X, to weave readers through more than six decades of perplexities of unresolved institutional racism, and his methods to challenge and defy it.

This explosive collection of poetry and photographs follows Muhammad on a remarkable journey through his early life of self-development, that awakens the boundaries of his social, spiritual and political consciousness.
