Malcolm X Killers Were Never Served Justice

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

Malcolm X was gunned down in New
York 46 years ago, but mystery
surrounded the details of his
death. "And his killers were
never served justice," Zaheer
Ali, Marable's chief researcher.

"Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention,"
the new book by Columbia University
professor Manning Marable, explains
why the investigation should be

On Feb. 21, 1965, Malcolm X was
speaking to several hundred people
at the Audubon Ballroom in upper
Manhattan when three men stood up
in the front rows and opened fire.

"As Marable's quite powerful book
details, four of the actual assassins
never were pursued and at least one
of them still lives openly in the
metro New York area," David Garrow,
historian and author.

The book asserts that the New York
Police Department knew Malcolm X's
life was in danger but looked away.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
