It was just last week, when the world found out that those convicted of killing the great civil rights leader Malcolm X would be exonerated. Now, just days later, Malcolm X’s daughter, Malikah Shabazz, was found dead in her living room.
TMZ is reporting that it happened at her home in Brooklyn, NY. According to sources in law enforcement, Shabazz was found by her daughter. Shabazz was on the floor, face-down.
The official cause of her death has not been confirmed. At only 56, her tragic death has hit home for so many.
I’m deeply saddened by the death of #MalikahShabazz. My heart goes out to her family, the descendants of Dr. Betty Shabazz and Malcolm X.
Dr. Shabazz was pregnant with Malikah and her twin sister, Malaak, when Brother Malcolm was assassinated.
