Malcolm X Daughter Age: Malikah Shabazz, a civil rights activist and the daughter of Malcolm X, has passed away. She was 56 years old at the time. Shabazz was discovered unconscious by her daughter inside their Brooklyn home on Monday afternoon, according to the New York Police Department.
When Muhammad Aziz was acquitted of the murder of Malcolm X, he met with members of his family outside the courthouse. His conviction in the crime was overturned on Thursday.
Two men convicted of the assassination of Malcolm X were exonerated more than half a century later.
In an interview with a local news site, the NYPD commissioner, Dermot Shea, stated that she had been unwell for a long length of time and that “at this moment, nothing seems suspicious.” Shea was working with other authorities, the medical examiner, and communicating with her family when she died.
Malikah Shabazz and her twin sister, Malaak, were the youngest of Malcolm X’s six children with his wife, Dr. Betty Shabazz, and were the youngest of Malcolm X’s six daughters with his wife, Dr. Betty Shabazz. The twins’ mother, Betty Shabazz, was nine months pregnant when Malcolm X was slain at the Audubon Ballroom in Washington Heights, a neighborhood in New York City, on February 21, 1965.
Among others who expressed their sympathies were Bernice King, a clergyman and the daughter of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, who took to Twitter.
Shabazz was born on July 22, 1962, in the New York borough of Brooklyn. It is believed that she was named after Elijah Muhammad, the head of the Nation of Islam, the religious and Black nationalist organization to which her parents belonged at the time of her birth. Shabazz is of African-American, African-Grenadian, English, and Scottish ancestry, as well as other nationalities.
Shabazz was present at the killing of her father in February 1965, when she was two years old, together with her mother and sisters. She claims she has no recollection of the incident.
Shabazz grew raised in a racially integrated area in the New York borough of Mount Vernon, where he had no political influences. Her family was never a participant in demonstrations or a spectator at rallies.
In the early 1960s, she and her sisters became members of Jack and Jill, a social organization for the children of wealthy African Americans. She pondered pursuing an acting career, however, her mother was not enthusiastic about the idea.
In the meantime, her mother was preoccupied with attempting to keep her father’s presence alive. She cooked her cookies, from which she would break a piece to create the idea that her father had eaten it before she came.
