New York, NY. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump held a news conference on Feb. 21, exactly 59 years since Malcolm X’s assassination, to introduce two new witnesses who offered evidence in the alleged conspiracy case. The press conference took place at The Malcolm X & Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center at 3940 Broadway New York, NY at 11:30 AM ET. Watch today’s press conference.

These two elderly witnesses were security associates of Malcolm X, arrested a week before his assassination, and have never spoken before publicly. Family of Malcolm X  presented co-counsel on the case, Ray Hamlin and Flint Taylor. Attorney Flint Taylor, from The People’s Law Office, represented the family of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton.

 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 allegedly 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.
