Louis Farrakhan / Linward X Cathcart

This still image from the Omar Shabazz 2011 documentary 'Naked Lies: the Continuous War Against Malcolm X' [purchase the DVD by email from] depicts two of the conspirators in the Malcolm X assassination - Minister Louis Farrakhan and Linward X Cathcart [aka Abdul Karriem Muhammad] - at an unidentified Nation of Islam rally. Upon leaving the Audubon Ballroom following the 21 February 1965 assassination of Malcolm X, Cathcart reportedly contacted Minister Louis X at Newark Temple No.25 to inform him that Malcolm's followers - to include his young daughters - had acted like [what Farrakhan later described as] "damn cowardly dogs" as Malcolm was being gunned down.

On 3 April 2011, a day before the publication of Manning Marable's biography 'Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention', Louis Farrakhan met with Linward X in Washington DC. The purpose of the meeting remains unclear.
