Malcom X's Daughter Found Dead


Last week two of the three men convicted for the murder of civil rights icon Malcom X were exonerated after a Netflix documentary shed new light on old evidence [click here if you missed that].

In another shocking turn of events Malcom X and Dr. Betty Shabazz's youngest daughter was found dead in her home this week...

Malikah Shabazz, 56, was found unresponsive at her home in Brooklyn by her daughter. No foul play is suspected at this time. 

Dr. Shabazz was pregnant with Malikah and her twin sister Maalak when her husband, Malcom X, was assassinated in front of her at the Audubon Ballroom in 1965.

Sad. May she rest in peace.

I was named after him. This is sad, but at least she's with her parents now.

This family has been through so much. Why is the exoneration of the two men above this woman's death announcement? This is about Malikah Shabazz's passing not the alleged assassins.

We are still fighting the same fight Malcom X. Please send your knowledge in spirit form, to this generation, to fight for justice.

9:40 I love Malcolm X too and you're so right, we may never see a person of that much courage, intelligence, class, elegance, grace, wisdom, charm and vigor as Mr. Malcolm X but the problem is crying out to any one besides The Most High and or relying on the power of our own hands to change this level of wickedness.. we need to put our trust in Him only, find out what he requires to serve him and work to do it, on one accord, as one people. RIP Malika!

I wonder how you die at 56 raised Muslim and eating better than most. Remember in the movie her mom met her dad speaking about to eat properly. I highly doubt that was made up and makes me wonder. ��
