i made another ten. but, barbara, you say what an important figure malcolm x was, and you were really a bit of a trailblazer yourself. african american woman, black american woman, studied at temple university, yale school of architecture and design. you were the first black american woman to receive a masters in fine arts. and yet, you decided to settle in paris, in france, late 1960, 1961. but why did you not stay in the united states and be part of the civil rights movement if it was so important to you? it was not a question of going or staying for me. it was a question of my own... it was a question of my own...life. it was my own star i was following.
