Malcolm X an African American nationalist and religious leader, was assassinated on this date by rival Black Muslims. He advocated black identify and held that racism, not the white race,was the African American's greatest enemy. Though it angered other Black Muslims, the movement steadily gained followers and influenced the civil rights movement.
