Malcolm X

*On this date in 1965, Black Nationalist Malcolm X was shot and killed. This happened at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem, while he was preparing to speak.

He was one of the most passionate and controversial people of the 20th century. Three of the men arrested were later identified as members of the Nation of Islam.

Thomas Hagan was one of the men who was arrested.  A week earlier, his home was firebombed; his wife and children escaped unharmed.
