On This Day



On This Day… Malcolm X’s Assasination!

Written by: George Chittenden : 07 Jul 2019

It was on this day, 21st February, back in 1965 when Malcolm X was assassinated by Nation of Islam members while speaking at a rally in New York City. The controversial black leader who once called for a 'blacks-only' state in the US, became a loyal minister of the Nation of Islam after meeting their leader Elijah Muhammad in prison.

Malcolm X became a powerful figure in their movement, until Elijah Muhammad began to see Malcolm as a threat. In the end Malcolm X was suspended from the Nation of Islam in late 1963 following a comment he made regarding President Kennedy’s assassination. In June 1964 he founded the Organisation of Afro-American Unity, which grew quickly in strength.

Surprisingly, Malcolm X’s home was firebombed a week before his assassination. A fantastic orator, Malcolm X was admired by the African American community in New York and across America.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
