How Did Malcolm X Die

Malcolm X (AKA Malcolm Little and El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) died on February 21, 1965 in New York City.

Malcolm X, prior to giving a speech at the Organization of Afro-American Unity in Manhattan, was shot with a double-barreled sawed-off shotgun in the chest by Talmadge Hayer. Norman 3X Butler and Thomas 15X Johnson were also charged. After founding the Afro-American nationalist group, X was denounced by his former associates of the Nation of Islam. There remains much speculation about the ultimate motive of those responsible for X’s assassination and who were their allies.
