NEW YORK, NY. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump and co-counsel Ray Hamlin will file a notice of claim with intent to sue government agencies and the NYPD for the alleged assassination and fraudulent concealment of evidence surrounding Malcolm X’s murder. They will be joined by the daughters of Malcolm X during a Tuesday news conference.
Tomorrow will mark 58 years since Malcolm X was assassinated on February 21, 1965, at age 39 while speaking at the Audubon Ballroom. He was shot a total of 21 times by a group of men in front of his wife and daughters. The connection between his death and federal and New York government agencies, including the NYPD, FBI, and CIA has long been contested. The governmental agencies had factual and exculpatory evidence that they fraudulently concealed from the family of Malcolm X and the men wrongly convicted of crimes surrounding the assassination of Malcolm X.
