New Evidence of NYPD Plot to Assassinate Malcolm X Unveiled on 59th Anniversary of Death

HeadlineFeb 22, 2024

In more news from New York, two former members of Malcolm X’s security team have revealed details of their entrapment and imprisonment by New York police just days ahead of the 1965 assassination of Malcolm X. Yesterday, one of the two men and family members of Malcolm X appeared at a press conference on the 59th anniversary of Malcolm’s murder. This is lawyer Benjamin Crump.

Benjamin Crump: “Was it 59 years later? And they still won’t give up the documents of their surveillance on Malcolm X, their reports generated about Malcolm X and their actions and orders delivered from J. Edgar Hoover himself regarding Malcolm X.”

We’ll have more on this story later in the broadcast with attorneys Benjamin Crump and Flint Taylor.
