Rate this:
On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X knew the end was near. For months he had been outrunning armed Muslims who wanted to kill him for breaking with Elijah Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, and defaming his name. And the strain showed as he moved to the podium in Harlem's Audubon Ballroom where a crowd of four hundred had gathered for a public rally -- only to witness Malcolm's X's violent end. Malcolm X: The assassination explores the conspiracy theories that found the FBI and CIA responsible for the murder, examines the stories of the two Muslim brothers from a New York mosque who were wrongly convicted of the crime, and provides an in-depth analysis of Malcolm X relationship with Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam. Now, three decades later, the controversy behind the assassination still rages in today's headlines, and the unresolved circumstances of Malcolm's tragic death continue to create a haunting legacy for us all.
