Members of Malcolm X’s household have come forth saying that a police officer made a death-bed confession, allegedly admitting that the New York Police Division and the FBI conspired to assassinate the civil rights icon in 1965.
The household launched a letter penned by a former undercover NYPD officer, Raymond Wooden, throughout a information convention on Saturday, the place Wooden stated he had been pressured by NYPD supervisors to persuade two members of Malcolm X’s safety element to commit crimes that resulted of their arrest a day earlier than Malcolm was scheduled to make a speech at New York’s Audubon Ballroom.

This prevented the safety males from being there to guard Malcolm X, and was a ploy by the NYPD and FBI to have him killed, the letter stated, fueling skepticism by students who’ve purported that three members of the Nation of Islam – a gaggle Malcolm X had been a pacesetter of — had been liable for his homicide.
“Underneath the course of my handlers, I used to be advised to encourage leaders and members of the civil rights teams to commit felonious acts,” Wooden’s letter said.
Wooden’s cousin, Reggie Wooden, joined a few of Malcolm X’s daughters on the web site the place the Audubon Ballroom was as soon as positioned, to make the contents of the letter public.
