Malcolm X Daughter Dead: Malikah Shabazz, the daughter of civil rights hero Malcolm X, was discovered dead in her Brooklyn home on Monday, November 22. Malikah was the daughter of cultural and civil rights icon Malcolm X.
When police arrived at her house on East 28th Street in the Midwood part of the borough shortly before 4:30 p.m., they discovered Shabazz, 56, unconscious and lifeless in the living room.
Within a short period of time, medical personnel declared her dead.
Malikah Shabazz, one of six children of the late civil rights icon Malcolm X, was discovered dead at her New York City home on Monday, according to authorities. She was 56 years old.
NBC New York reported that Shabazz was discovered unconscious in her Brooklyn home at 4:30 p.m. after police responded to a 911 call made by her daughter, according to officials.
The medical examiner’s office informed NBC New York that the cause of her death has not been identified and that her death has not been ruled suspicious at this time.
Shabazz Shabazz is the youngest of Malcolm X’s kids with his wife Betty Shabazz, and she has a twin sister, Malaak, with her father. Malcolm X died at the age of 39 on February 21, 1965, in the Audubon Ballroom in New York City, and the twins were born in 1965 after he was shot and murdered there.
Bernice King, the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. and a fellow civil rights activist, expressed her sympathies through Twitter on Monday. Officials are not believed to be suspecting foul play at this time.
Malikah Shabazz is the youngest of five daughters born to Malcolm X and the late Dr. Betty Shabazz. She has a twin sister called Malaka. The Shabazz twins are the youngest of the family’s seven children. Dr. Shabazz died in 1997 at the age of 76.
After just a few days of investigation, a New York court found the men accused of assassinating Malcolm X at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan in 1965 not guilty.
The exoneration of Muhammad Aziz and the late Khalil Islam came after they had each spent decades in jail for the deadly shooting of Malcolm X.
In 1983, the state gave Aziz parole, and in 1987, the authorities freed Islam from prison. Later, in 2009, he passed away.
Mujahid Abdul Halim, who was detained with Aziz and Islam and later confessed to the shooting, was released on parole in 2010. Aziz and Islam were both released on parole in 2010.
“I’m terribly heartbroken by the death of Malikah Shabazz,” Bernice King, the daughter of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., posted on Twitter. “I’m deeply grieved by the death of Malikah Shabazz.”
“My thoughts and prayers are with her family, who are descended from Dr. Betty Shabazz and Malcolm X. When Brother Malcolm was slain, Dr. Shabazz was eight months pregnant with Malikah and her twin sister, Malaak. Malikah and Malaak were born. “Please rest in peace, Malikah.”
Last month, during an interview with the Black Press of America in New York, Ilyasah Shabazz, the third daughter in the family, expressed her appreciation for the closeness of her extended family.
“When we can, we chat and get together as often as possible,” Ilyasah Shabazz said.
“We are tight, and we care about one another. It’s always a treat when we can get together through video conference, and it’s even better when we can get together in person.”
