Daughter of human rights activist Malcolm X dies | Abroad – to the world

Shabazz was found unconscious by her daughter in her Brooklyn apartment. She died shortly afterwards.

Shabazz was the youngest of six daughters of Malcolm X. She never knew her father, who was shot dead in 1965 while his wife was pregnant with twins. Malcolm X is said to have been shot dead by members of the Nation of Islam, an activist group to which he previously belonged but which he left after an argument.

Malcolm X was one of the most important and well-known advocates of African American equality during the 1960s. Two people convicted of murder were acquitted last week, served a total of 20 years in prison, and were paroled in the 1980s.

The daughter of another leading human rights activist, Martin Luther King, responded with grief at Shabazz’s death. Bernice King offered his condolences to Shabazz’s family. “Rest in peace, Malikah,” King said on Twitter. In 1968 Martin Luther King was shot.
