One of the daughters of Malcom X wrote her memoirs, telling what it was like to be raised in the home of the famous black leader. Ilyasah Shabazz was the third daughter of Malcolm X and Betty Shabazz. Betty Shabazz took the girls to the mosque every Sunday, but when they were visiting their grandparents in Philadelphia, they went to Friendship Baptist Church. Ilyasah loved the church, especially the praying and testifying and the singing of gospel music. She writes, “I loved the singing that went on. I wanted to feel whatever powerful force was causing all of these people to sing and clap so heartily. I never did catch the Spirit, but I always kept the hope.” Probably no one told her that she just needed to open her heart to the Spirit and that he was more than ready to come in.
