Family Of Malcolm X To Sue US Authorities Over His Killing

  • Three men were originally convicted of the assassination, but two were exonerated in 2021 after a renewed investigation into the cases, prompted by the documentary, showed the evidence used to gain convictions was shaky and that authorities had held back some information.
  • Ilyasah Shabazz, the co-administrator of her father’s estate, filed notices of the claim, which is the first step in the process, saying that the agencies “conspired with each other and with other individuals and acted, and failed to act, in such a way as to bring about the wrongful death of Malcolm X.”
  • Ms Shabazz told a news conference: “For years our family has fought for the truth to come to light.”
