[SCREENING] Did the NYPD and the FBI have any roles in the assassination of Malcolm X? That is one of many questions asked in the 1994 documentary film Brother Minister: The Assassination of Malcolm X. In February of 1965, the 39-year-old Muslim minister and human rights activist was killed in a hail of gunfire at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan as he prepared to address the Organization of Afro-American Unity. Several men were arrested and convicted of the murder, but many believe that the real killers were never brought to justice. The film will be shown at Burning Books on Wednesday, February 18, presented by the Buffalo Committee Against State Repression.
