- Malcolm X

* Malcolm X was born on May 19, 1925.  On February 21, 1965, he was preparing to address the Organization of Afro-American Unity in Manhattan’s Audubon Ballroom when a man who was seated in the front row of the 400-person audience rushed forward and shot him.  Then two other men charged the stage and shot Malcolm X several times.  He was pronounced dead at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital at 3:30 pm.

A Public viewing was held at Harlem’s Unity Funeral Home from February 23 through February 26.  Estimates of the number of mourners attending varied from 14,000 to 30,000.  The funeral was held on February 27 at the Faith Temple of the Church of God in Christ in Harlem.  A local television station broadcast the funeral live.  Actor and activist Ossie Davis delivered the eulogy, where he described Malcolm X as “our shining black prince.”
