On February 21, 1965, at a meeting of the Organization of Afro-American Unity at the popular Audubon Ballroom in Harlem, Malcolm X was shot & killed. However, over the following decades, the people & motives behind his assassination have remained shrouded in mystery. Now, based on 15 years of research, including hundreds of interviews & the examination of 300,000 pages of declassified FBI & CIA documents, The Judas Factor: The Plot to Kill Malcolm X provides the first in-depth analysis of the role the intelligence community played in instigating the death of the Nation of Islam's most revered-and feared-leader. The Judas Factor details Malcolm X's rise & fall, revealing how the intelligence community monitored him, through agents provocateur & infiltration, manipulating his course. Thoroughly documented & illustrated with rare photographs, The Judas Factor is a riveting & often shocking work that sheds new light on the tragic death of one of the greatest black leaders of our time.
