X, Malcolm, 1925-1965. MALCOLM X ASSASSINATION TRIAL: THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK V. THOMAS HAGAN, THOMAS 15X JOHNSON, AND NORMAN 3X BUTLER.
Wilmington, DE: Scholarly Resources, 1990.
Malcolm X was assassinated in New York City on February 21, 1965. Ten months later, three men were tried for the murder. They were members of the Nation of Islam, a religious organization that at the time believed in the separation of the races. Malcolm X had been a leading spokesman for the group until he broke away and formed the rival Organization of African Unity (OAAU). These transcripts record the discourse that took place among the attorneys, witnesses, and court officials during the entire length of the trial. .
A synopsis of the trial, a brief biography of Malcolm X, and notes to the user are included in the guide. A listing of the roll contents is included in both the guide and at the beginning of the first roll.
