Two men convicted of killing Malcolm X set to be exonerated, report says

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office said it will move to exonerate two men convicted of killing Black activist and civil rights advocate Malcolm X in 1965.

Malcolm X rose to prominence as the national spokesman of the Nation of Islam, an African-American Muslim group that espoused Black separatism.

He spent more than a decade with the group before becoming disillusioned and publicly breaking with it in 1964.

He was killed at New York’s Audubon Ballroom while preparing to deliver a speech.
