Malcolm’s involvement in politics and advocacy began at the early age of 11 through his work with Vietnam Veterans of America’s campaign for the war against drugs and violence. After his five-year-old brother, Marcus Yates, was murdered in a Southwest Philadelphia candy store, Malcolm participated in the national campaign “Safe Kids Week.” He is also involved in Lost Dreams on Canvas, a program that preserves the memories of the children whose lives were taken through senseless violence.

Malcolm serves as a convener of the Delaware County Black Caucus and is on the Board of Directors for PHMC subsidiary Joseph J. Peters Institute, Delaware County Industrial Authority, The Foundation for Delaware County, Southwest Philadelphia Community Development Corporation, Community Learning Center, and Vested In Financial Services, Inc.

Malcolm earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Management and Marketing from Norfolk State University, a Master of Science in Strategic Leadership from Neumann University, and a second Master’s degree in Public Administration with a concentration in Political Science from Widener University. He also completed a fellowship with the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute of Government for Board Governance and Leadership.
