Your Black World has just received the official statement on the death of Malcolm Shabazz. Terrie M. Williams, a family friend and representative, sent the statement this afternoon. The statement does little to clear up the circumstances surrounding Malcolm’s death, but the family is thankful to those who’ve supported Malcolm and his relatives over the years. On last reports, Malcolm died in Mexico. Some are saying that his death occurred during a robbery, but after Malcolm’s statements about his trip to Iran, some speculate something more sinister.
The Your Black World team sends our condolences to the Shabazz family and we wish Malcolm Shabazz peace in the afterlife. The statement is below, and an article on the topic by Dr. Boyce Watkins can be read here.
We are deeply saddened by the passing of our beloved El Hajj Malcolm El Shabazz. To all who knew him, he offered kindness, encouragement and hope for a better tomorrow. Although his bright light and boundless potential are gone from this life, we are grateful that he now rests in peace in the arms of his grandparents and the safety of God. We will miss him.
With grateful hearts, we send sincerest appreciation to our supporters around the world for your tremendous outpouring of love and respect during our time of grief.
The Shabazz Family
