Malcolm Little, better know as Malcolm X, was an American Muslim minister and human rights activist. To his admirers he was a courageous advocate for the rights of African Americans. He later became the National Minister for the Nation of Islam, changing his name to Al-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz.[1]


Civil Rights Movement

Malcolm X was a leading member in the civil right movement fighting for the rights of African Americans in the US. His work inspired many, including the Skrull world of Kral IV where a faction based their lives on the civil right movement being transmitted from Earth. One of the Skrull even based his identity of Malcolm X.[2]

Journey Abroad

In 1964, Malcolm X traveled abroad to Mecca. This trip expanded his thinking beyond Black and White, into a more of an international mindset. He broke away from the Nation of Islam. He traveled to Africa and met with various heads of states. He took his aide, Harriet Munroe, and her son, David, along with him. He even met T'Chaka, the ruler of Wakanda.[3]

Assassination

On February 21st, 1965, he was assassinated in Harlem's Autobahn Ballroom by three members of his former group, the Nation of Islam.[3][1]
