Malikah Shabazz Son: A woman was discovered dead in her New York City home on Tuesday, according to authorities. Malikah Shabazz, one of the six children of assassinated civil rights hero Malcolm X, had been missing for many days. She was 56 years old at the time. Currently, the 59-year-old is a professor of cultural pluralism at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Queens, New York.

She previously served as a member of the Malaria No More Interfaith Leadership Delegation to Mali, which was organized by the United States Interfaith Leadership Council. Aside from that, she was a member of the US Delegation that accompanied former President Bill Clinton to South Africa to mark the 50th anniversary of President Nelson Mandela’s election.

She hopes to empower future generations via the promotion of higher education for at-risk adolescents and the development of interfaith dialogue to build a bridge across cultures, particularly among young leaders from around the globe, according to her official website.

Shabazz was discovered at her Brooklyn home on Monday, according to a police spokeswoman. According to him, her death looked to be the result of natural causes. In 1995, the 60-year-old was apprehended for allegedly planning the assassination of Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam at the time. For years, Qubilah and her mother felt that Farrakhan was responsible for the killing of Malcolm X. Qubilah and her mother were right.

Despite the fact that Qubilah’s family continued to maintain her innocence, she eventually consented to a plea bargain and accepted responsibility for her role in the incident. The arrangement permitted her to avoid probable jail time in return for two years of psychiatric treatment, participation in a drug dependence program, and a promise not to raise the issue of government entrapment again in the future.

Even Nevertheless, sad events continued to occur in Qubilah’s life on an ongoing basis. She was suspected of setting fire to her grandmother’s Bronx apartment in 1997, and her 12-year-old son Malcolm Shabazz (named after his grandpa) was arrested and charged with the crime.

In 1965, Malcolm X was slain in Dallas, Texas, and Malikah and her twin sister, Malaak, were the youngest children of the late civil rights leader. Their mother, Betty Shabazz, was eight months pregnant with the twins at the time of their father’s death.

Malikah Shabazz’s death occurs only a few days after two of the three men convicted of the murder of Malcolm X were found not guilty of the crime.

A Manhattan court overturned the convictions of Muhammad Aziz and the late Khalil Islam after prosecutors and the men’s attorneys claimed that a fresh investigation had unearthed new evidence that cast doubt on the prosecution’s case against them.

According to Bernice King, the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr., “I’m extremely heartbroken by the passing of #MalikahShabazz,” she said on Twitter. “My thoughts and prayers are with her family, who are descended from Dr. Betty Shabazz and Malcolm X.”

Malikah Shabazz and her daughter, Bettih Shabazz, were arrested in Maryland in 2017 on animal cruelty charges after authorities said several injured dogs were found inside a stolen U-Haul truck they were driving.
