The recent news that the family of Malcolm X announced plans to file a $100 million wrongful death lawsuit against a phalanx of law enforcement agencies, including the NYPD, CIA and FBI coincided with the 58th anniversary of his assassination at the Audubon Ballroom in Washington Heights, New York. Ilyasah Shabazz, one of Malcolm’s six daughters, announced the suit at the site of her father’s death, standing alongside noted civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump. “We’d like our father to receive the justice that he deserves,” explained Shabazz.
