February 21, 1965, fifty-eight years ago today, Malcolm X tragically lost his life at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City. His tragic death remains a mystery. The 2018 Netflix documentary, “Who Killed Malcolm X?”, attempted to piece together his unresolved murder. Charges against Muhammad Aziz and Khalil Islam, previously charged with murdering Malcolm X, were thrown out in 2021. For decades, historians had skepticism on the case against Muhammad A. Aziz and Khalil Islam. According to the New York Times, Aziz and Khalil Islam spent over 20 years in prison. On the 58th anniversary of Malcolm X’s death, the family announced a $100 million lawsuit against the FBI, New York Police Department, CIA, and the FBI for wrongful death. The NYPD intentionally concealed evidence to solve the murder of the slain Civil Rights Leader, according to the Washington Post. Attorney Ben Crump Law Firm is representing the family. Malcolm X’s daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, who attended the news conference, shared that her family and those he positively impacted are vying for complete closure of Malcolm X’s death. Ben Crump has made his mark as America’s attorney, taking on high-profile civil rights and police brutality cases. According to the AP News, Crump helps George Floyd’s family win a $27 million settlement against the City of Minneapolis. Floyd’s police brutality case is US history’s largest civil rights pre-trial settlement on wrongful death, according to the AP News. Will Malcolm X’s family finally receive justice now that Crump has taken over the case?
