Description[The Death of Malcolm X]. Group of Twenty-One Photographs and One Newspaper. Nearly one year after his departure from the Nation of Islam and his conversion to Sunni Islam, Black Nationalist leader Malcolm X was gunned down by three men in the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan (February 21, 1965). He was shot twenty-one times. This collection of twenty-one photographs contains images of the ballroom right after the killing; the body being wheeled out shortly after the assassination; scenes from the funeral, including mourners lining the streets of New York as the body was transported to the cemetery and his widow, Betty; and burial.
Also included is an issue of the Daily News, dated February 27, 1965, featuring a cover story of the killing. A photograph of one of the alleged killers, Norman 3X Butler, appears at the lower edge. At the time of the printing, two of the three gunmen were in police custody with a third expected to be arrested that day. The first to be caught was Talmadge Hayer, who confessed to the killing. The third assassin the paper mentions was Thomas 15X Johnson. All three men were convicted of the crime.
