On this day, 55 years ago, the legendary Malcolm X was assassinated. The FBI had documents showing Malcolm and Elijah were bugged 24 hours a day, but his murder was still questionable by whom and why. A new documentary on Netflix explores the era and what really happened.
The film exposed someone going down 20 years for the death and was innocent of the crime. It also exposed just how many people knew who was truly responsible, but there were people with motives that did not do anything about getting the truth out.
Today as apart of “Black History Month”, we celebrate the life of Malcolm X.
On this day 55 years ago, brother #MalcolmX was assassinated. Shot and killed in front of his family. May our shining black prince Rest In Power. ✊🏾

"If a dog is sicced on a Black man when that Black man is doing nothing but trying to take advantage of what the government says is supposed to be his, then that Black man should kill that dog or any two-legged dog who sics the dog on him." –#MalcolmX on self-defense & solidarity pic.twitter.com/Wik41jYRvp

It's bugged out how they cleaned up the crime scene so quickly after #MalcolmX was assassinated, just to have a dance that was planned in the ballroom later that night.
