Abstract February 21, 1965. Controversial civil rights leader Malcolm X is gunned down during a speech in Manhattan. Three men were found guilty of the murder. But rumors of conspiracy and cover-up still swirl. Who gave the order for Malcolm X's murder? Why did two of the convicted killers insist upon their innocence even after being released from prison in the 1980s? This book provides an overview to the assassination, and the impact of Malcolm X's life, and his death, on civil rights in the United States.
