T.D.I.H. - Feb 21

On this date in 1965, Malcolm X ( Malcolm Little) was assassinated. While in prison as a young man, Malcolm joined the Nation of Islam, a Black Muslim organization. He would eventually rise to become the second most powerful figure in the religion, and was eventually killed by members of the Nation of Islam, most probably at the orders of Louis Farrakhan.
