Inhaltsangabe: On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X knew the end was near. For months he had been outrunning armed Muslims who wanted to kill him for breaking with Elijah Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, and defaming his name. And the strain showed as he moved to the podium in Harlem's Audubon Ballroom where a crowd of four hundred had gathered for a public rally -- only to witness Malcolm's X's violent end.
Malcolm X: The assassination explores the conspiracy theories that found the FBI and CIA responsible for the murder, examines the stories of the two Muslim brothers from a New York mosque who were wrongly convicted of the crime, and provides an in-depth analysis of Malcolm X relationship with Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam.
Now, three decades later, the controversy behind the assassination still rages in today's headlines, and the unresolved circumstances of Malcolm's tragic death continue to create a haunting legacy for us all.
In this intense book, researcher Michael Friedly examines the electric events that culminated in the assassination of Malcolm X in Harlem's Audubon Ballroom and tries to unravel the various theories.
In the process of chronicling the events that led to the Harlem shooting--the threats, the firebombing of Malcolm's home, and the final onslaught of attempts made on his life--Friedly reveals the climate of violence and deception in which the assassination took place.
Four separate attempts were made on Malcolm's life made in the weeks before his death. Additionally, Friedly details how Malcolm X, a Nation of Islam minister of 12 years, was the target of an internal plot of jealousy by several of Muhammad's ministers. He also shows the constant jockeying among the top ministers for a favored position of power with Muhammad as the old leader aged and became ill.
Malcolm X: The Assassination explores what happened to Malcolm in the year after his departure from the Nation of Islam. Friedly also covers the retaliatory strikes by Malcolm's followers against several Nation of Islam mosques across the country after the killing of the one-time Black Muslim leader.
Friedly concludes that it was actually the Nation of Islam, and not the government, whose driving desire to see the black nationalist silenced could have led to murder.
