The assassination of Malcolm X is one of the most famous crimes in US history. The controversial civil rights leader was gunned down in front of his wife and children while making a speech in New York. Three men were convicted of his murder and sentenced to life in prison, and have been considered heinous criminals for more than 50 years. However, as of November 2021, two of those men have been exonerated. New evidence, along with FBI files that were withheld during the trial, has proven the innocence of Muhammad A. Aziz and Khalil Islam. Islam passed away in 2009 before he could see himself exonerated, and Aziz is now 83 years old. Attorney Barry Scheck, co-founder of the Innocence Project has called it "one of the most blatant miscarriages of justice" he's ever seen.
